Every month gardenbloggers post what's blooming in their garden on the 15th, but like all Marylanders, there's absolutely nothing to show you. In fact, even the groundcovers that looked great a month ago have emerged from the snow looking really ratty. A few dead leaves add to the tableau of gray and decay.
So I paid a visit to Homestead for Bloom Day just to see some color, and photographed my favorite for you - okay, really for me. I love cyclamen paired with this lovely green plant with the white flower, the name of which I can't remember. Anyone?
No matter how bad your garden looks, you can find something lovely to look at on these 100+ gardenblogs from around the world (scroll down to see links to all their Bloom Day articles). Warning: You may develop ill will toward Californians.
