Welcome to the 15th of the month and Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Brought to us as always by the blog May Dream Gardens, this is the day that gardeners (indoor and out) from all over the word show what is blooming in their gardens or in their houses. After you read my post, please hop over to May Dream Gardens and see the beauty of flowers from all over the world.
Here in upstate New York (zone 5b) we have had a cold, rainy spring. A Corporate Challenge charity road/walk race event that never gets postponed due to weather got postponed due to weather. The clouds have a science fiction look to them. Every time it threatens rain I feel like I'm in a novel.
Today, though, is going to be sunny and in the 70's.
On our side yard, a wild rose (any thoughts to what exactly it could be?) is in full bloom.
Also in our side yard, the last of the "Kool Aid" irises (they have a wonderful grape fragrance). I took this better picture several days ago when they looked better.
In my front yard, cleome, which I am growing for the first time.
What Garden Bloggers Bloom Day post wouldn't be complete without a mystery plant? My spouse and I plant things and then forget what we planted. I suspect this is an allium that I picked up on clearance last fall. Would appreciate your "best guess".
UPDATE 6-18-13 I have a positive ID on the above flower - Allium bulgaricum, from a friend's sister. Thank you!!!!!
Tangerine Gem marigold. My first time growing these. The flowers are supposed to be edible.
Happy GBBD to all.
Have you had unusual weather these past few months?
