Bloom Day February 2011

What was I thinking, sleeping in on Bloom Day?

Getting straight to the point…

Grevillea ‘Superb’


Pelargonium echinatum






Salvia chiapensis


Ammi majus




The first flower of Salvia iodantha wagneriana in honor of Bloom Day. Thanks, Carol!

  1. Oh Denise…I think your bloomday post just propelled me right past spring fever and right into summer! Beautiful!

  2. Grace says:

    Fabulous blooms, Denise. I hope my S. chiapensis overwintered. Your Grevilla is wonderful.

  3. Laguna Dirt says:

    geez denise, those photos are beyond gorgeous!!! literally breath-taking!

  4. I am glad to see your flowers–you are way ahead of us. Here in snowy Pennsylvania, the temperature shot up yesterday, and I found a lot of flowers to photograph for GBBD.

  5. Kathy says:

    Fabu-fabu Denise, I’m especially partial to the Anigozanthus, mine are tattered and snail bitten.

  6. I am so ignorant. When do these bloom days happen?

  7. I wish I could see your garden in person!

  8. Les says:

    I feel in love with Anigozanthus when I first saw them. A florist at one of the hotels I worked for regularly used them in arrangements. I was disappointed when I learned they can’t grow here, so I am envious of yours. Happy GBBD!

  9. I’m frankly jealous of your grevilla! And it’s lovely to see your carefully-cultured tulips performing for you this month. Happy Bloom Day!

    Loree, that’s true, these are the hot colors of summer, aren’t they?
    Grace, I hope your chiapensis comes through. Definitely your color!
    LD, thank you! I loved your Bloom Day wildflowers — and snake!
    Carolyn, it’s good to hear the temp warmed up. Can’t wait to see what you found under the snow.
    Thanks, Hoov!
    Kathy, some of these leaves have been chewed, but not too bad. I’ve had worse luck.
    Dustin, Carol at May Dreams Gardens hosts a Bloom Day the 15th of each month, and over 100 gardens post what’s in bloom in their part of the world. Come by early next Sunday.
