Bloom Day

This post, “Bloom Day” was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana 

I thought I would be able to take some pictures for Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day, but when I got home from work it was raining.  So here is just a list of what is blooming here in my little corner of the world in Covington, Louisiana.  In the entry garden, I have red Gerber Daisies, ageratum, red petunias, and purple petunias in bloom.  In the side garden, white pansies and violas, and paperwhites are in flower.  In the circle garden, yellow pansies and the Debutant Camellia are in bloom.  In the back yard, camellias, Knock Out roses, forsythia, and the lime tree are all showing off their flowers.

It will not be long before I have even more names to post.  I was surprised by some amaryllis that my sister gave me.  I planted them in the late fall and just noticed today that some buds are up about eight inches.  I can’t wait to see them open.

Something else I am anticipating is the Louisiana Iris I have planted.  They are starting to grow vigorously, and I expect to see buds forming very soon.

    Thanks for your comments about water restrictions. Unfortunately we can’t even use soaker hoses – we’re just not allowed to have anything running in the garden outside of the restricted hours. But I do appreciate the reasons you gave about the timing.

    You’re welcome, Kathie.
