GBBD in Mid-May 2016

Finally the weather is warm +20 C (65 F) ! The most unpretentious and simple flowers and fruit trees are in bloom. Here they are.
Red apple tree and Blackthorn tree: 


Tulips are in bloom too, anemones already opened their flowers


Dicentra eximia blossoms. My other Dicentra spectabilis isn't yet flowering. White fritillaria appeared near roses that perhaps didn't survive.


Like fragrant violet, Vinca minor is the first that blossoms in spring, but few people pay attention to it. I think Vinca minor is very invasive and I always keep an eye how wide it grows.


Poor little mahonia, it was almost frozen and lost many of its branches, only two are green and in bloom now.

 
And now good news. The magazine "Suburban Club" published my article 'My Garden Style', about  the pond creation, water lilies and decorative bushes. My virtual garden exists more than 5 years on my blog and now it appeared in printed magazine, that anyone can have on his table. Here is a cover page, №5 May 2016: 


 These are pages 50 and 51 with my article and my photos.


Although editors love to remake original articles, in my case the article is almost completely kept and basic thoughts highlighted. I liked it.
What is blooming in your place? Do you enjoy spring weather?

  8. Spring is wonderful time!
    I like mahonia very much, but I don't have it by myself. But one of my neighbors does and I often go to her flowerbed to enjoy it. Here it survived winter quite well for this time, usually is very burned.

  12. We are just slightly ahead of you in that many of the plants you mention are either going over or in full flower.

    Well done on the article,

  13. Congratulations on being published! How exciting! All your spring blooms are lovely and especially delightful to see since most of these have long finished blooming here. We had quite a cold spell this weekend, but I'm hopeful that the weather will finally be warm enough to plant all my little babies waiting in pots. Happy Bloom Day!
