Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - May 2011

May is one of my favorite months to participate in this monthly, "What's blooming in your yard?"  blogging day. Its held the 15th of each month and is hosted by May Dreams Gardens. We all link to her blog so we can tour each others yards for what's blooming. Its a lot of fun and there are quite a few people who participate. Stunning photography and beautiful flowers are what make it all worthwhile.

I am in Zone 7B/8A and here is what is blooming in mine:

For our area, this is prime time for garden tours to be held. Our Master Gardener Association will choose the first few weeks of May to hold our annual Spring Garden Tour. We usually have a lot of factors that determine how many things are in bloom here during that time.  We always seems to make it work though. We love our garden tours around here.


  1. My Shasta Daisies have not begun blooming yet. I look forward to them. I need to divide some and move some, however. Lovely flowers in your garden! Happy GBBD Day!

  2. have fun on your garden tours.

  3. @Sage Butterfly - Thanks. I'd been waiting anxiously for my Shasta Daisies to bloom this year. It seems to take forever from bud to bloom..or maybe I'm just impatient. I had to divide most of my plantings of them this year. It feels good to put them in other parts of my yard and pass along a few to some friends. I love daisies. :) Happy GBBD to you too!

  4. @greggo - I always enjoy a garden tour. I need to see who is next around here! Thanks. :)
