What’s Blooming? What’s Not? Posted on April 29, 2010 by Mary Schier Spring continues to barrel on about two weeks ahead of time, meaning my garden is full of May bloomers before May Day arrives. Here are a few photos of what’s up: I moved these azaleas last year because they never really seemed happy in my front yard -- which is sunnier and more alkaline than this backyard bed. They're still tiny for azaleas that have been in the ground nine seasons, but the blooms are gorgeous this year. After getting a decent harvest from this 'Bali' cherry tree last year, I am so excited to see it in glorious bloom. In a few weeks, I'll put a net over it because the birds are not getting any of the cherries this year. No related posts.
