There are many gardeners who blog and connect once a month to share what is blooming in their gardens. The connecting blog is May Dreams Garden. Gardeners around the country list what growing zone they are in and then share what is happening this month. It is spring so there is so much going on around the country. It is worth it to take a jump over to May Dreams and see what is growing this time of year.
Here in Minneapolis Minnesota (zone 4B) we are in the middle of a “historic blizzard”. We are on day two of almost continuous snow and wind. I am in the middle of the city so our winds have been more like 25 to 30 miles an hour. In the open country they are reaching in the 50’s.
Here are images of my garden right now:
Given this sorry state of affairs in the outside garden I decided that it is best to show you the indoors garden. Here the Christmas cactus is finishing a second bloom this “winter”, the Orchid is just beginning to bloom and the African violets are also starting a bloom cycle. One violet is in full bloom the other two you need to look closely but the buds are there and will be in flower later this week I am sure. Those two violets are slips from a friend who lives further north than I. This is their first time blooming.
Here’s hoping that our next Bloom Day I will have something to show from the outside garden. May 15 is suppose to be our last frost date but all bets are off this year.
