Alana from Ramblin’ with AM left me a comment yesterday in a post where I asked if anyone knew any good gardening blogs I could follow from gardeners here in the Southern Hemisphere. Her comment pointed me to May Dreams Gardens’ Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day posts! Thank you, Alana!
Basically, gardeners from all over the world post (on their own blogs) about whatever is blooming (or not blooming) in their garden on the 15th of every month and then leave a comment on the monthly blog post over at May Dreams Gardens :) Yay for finding more gardening blogs!
It’s already the 15th here, and the October post is already up over on May Dreams Gardens, so I’m going to post what’s going on in my garden :) If you have a gardening blog & want to network with other gardeners, you should check it out!
Today was a weird sort of day, weather-wise. It looked like it was going to rain, but then the sun would come out. Then it would go back to looking like it was going to rain. We did get about 20 seconds worth of rain, but it must just be blowing through.
Nothing is actually blooming in my garden yet, since it’s only the early days of spring, so I’ll show you what’s sprouting instead! :)
The camera decided our porch chairs were more interesting! :)
I can’t wait till these bloom. I’ve got four different colors in my tire planters — baby blue-eye, penny black, snowstorm and five-spot. I’m hoping they lure bees in to pollinate my veggies.
I’ve always, always wanted to have a Japanese maple tree, and this house just so happens to have one in the back :) She’s so pretty! I think some of her lower branches might be dead as they’re not putting forth anything, but I’m not sure. I need to read up on them, and possibly move her to a sunnier position.
I still can’t believe we actually have one!
Our little apple tree’s leaves are unfurling and are so pretty to see. He (she?) is only about 6 inches tall right now, so I find it really adorable and precious :) That’s a lot of growing for just over a week or so! You can see the last picture I took here.
That’s pretty much all the new pictures I have to share :) If you haven’t read now & gwen before, most of my gardening posts have pictures in them. Please feel free to browse!
On an unrelated note: The plantnappers did not visit last night. I am relieved. Very relieved!
To my gardening readers out there — anything blooming in your gardens? Will you be posting a GBBD post?
