My garden provides the only real sense of normalcy at the moment. I collected another round of photos to share with those of you who are also seeking distraction. I'll start with the blooms I missed when I put together my mid-month Bloom Day post less than a week ago.
|How did I forget to show you a view of my California poppies?|
|Euphorbia x martinii 'Ascot Rainbow' echoes the colors of the in Yucca 'Bright Star' behind it|
|Narcissus tazetta 'Geranium' is making a statement in the front garden|
|Pelargonium hybrid 'White Lady' gets around on the back slope|
All sorts of flowers made their first appearance this week.
|Iris douglasiana 'Santa Lucia' unfolds new blooms daily|
|Two more Leucospermums, 'Brandi' (left) and 'Spider' (right) are on their way|
|My first rose of the season bloomed! It came with the garden and has a beautiful scent but I've no ID for it.|
I even had a couple of pleasant surprises.
Our shelter-in-place order remains in effect until at least April 19th so I guess I'll have time to tackle the variety of garden projects, big and small, that I've been putting off. If you've found yourself suddenly at loose ends, I hope you're finding positive ways to occupy yourself too. I'll close with another shot of the Scilla peruviana in my back garden, not because you didn't see it in my Bloom Day post, but only because I think it's very pretty.
Best wishes for a stress-free weekend.
