GBBD April

Well, I definitely have a little garden envy after seeing so many beautiful posts today! I was working in my front border, and I comforted myself with the thought that I have tons of plants sprouting foliage, which at least bodes well for the future! But the cold, snowy, cloudy weather we've had lately has kept most of my plants in a holding pattern, so this lonely daffodil is the only actual bloom right now, and it can barely be called that. The tulips' leaves are out if full force but there's no buds yet. My irises and peonies are also showing vigorous foliage, so hopefully by next GBBD, I'll have more excitement to share!

Here's some peony canes...

...and those columbines I keep talking about.

Although not technically a bloom, my coleus seedlings are looking good, and I can't wait for the risk of frost to be officially over so I can plant them in some containers! For more GBBD, see Carol at May Dreams Garden!

May will be a big month for blooms around here. I can't wait, although the Peony foliage is almost as nice as a flower. My daughter commented on mine, as she was looking for red flowers & couldn't find any. I was trying to get her to settle for dark purple when she noticed the beautiful red stems.
