Welcome, WordCount Blogathoners and others to my 15th of the month post - Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. This meme is brought to us by MayDreams Gardens - please visit her site and the other participating blogs after you check out my photos. You will see plants and blooms from all over the world.
We are still running ahead of schedule here in upstate NY. The lilacs (which had an off year) have already bloomed. My irises aren't ready yet and my rhodies are just barely starting to open.
First up are the purple flowers.
Here's a yellow flowered bleeding heart.
I have lily of the valley blooming too, but they didn't come out well. OK, be shy.
And finally, a little treat. This is a telephone pole by our house. A woodpecker loves to stop by and peck but we rarely see him/her. Yesterday evening, there was the woodpecker! With maximum zoom this was the best I could get but - well, I have a long way to go as a wildlife photographer. I'm glad plants stand still!
Ahhhh, spring. Hope you enjoyed my little corner of upstate NY. What is blooming in your garden?
