0°...+2 C (30 ..38 F ) at nighttime. These days coming to my garden I try to find some new sprouts, opened buds, new blooms, flowering berry bushes.
However it's a Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, dear fellows. Although this spring is late, I show you plants and flowers that dared to blossom in the warmest and windless places of my garden. Here are primrose, their white and dark red small flowers appeared around large stones heated by the sun.
I must say new leaves and sprouts popped on berry bushes too, but the fruit trees are behind, still without greenness. There are blackcurrant, redcurrant and gooseberry bushes in my garden.
Here are blackcurrant bushes, love their berries, especially in winter and below are
Near the patio behind the summer cottage wall the first tulips started blooming, yesterday when I took photos they had not yet opened their heads.
My new rhododendrons varieties 'New Zembla' and 'Cunningham White' are healthy, with buds, hopefully they will in bloom soon.
The little blue Chionodoxa is blooming second week in spite of the cold weather and north wind. Its bright blue flowers are seen everywhere.
If you're not tired let's take a look at my greenhouse. Here are the plants transported last week. As you see they are well, even clematis 'President' continues flowering - what a nice flower!
New fresh sorrel grows there too, I'll cook sorrel soup soon :-)
I have some plans to redesign the front garden. There were two flower beds, one with Ligularias and another one was a small rock garden. There is an empty spot sowed with grass seeds instead of Ligularia.
The renovation idea isn't yet materialized. I'm just thinking. Maybe you have any ideas or advice?
Has your garden blossomed now or is lagging this year? What plants did you like in May?
Have you new plans about your garden?
