Bloom Day: Spring Has Sprung — Despite The Chill

Variegated Solomon’s Seal

It is Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day again! On the 15th of each month, we gardeners with blogs share a few bloom photos from our gardens. 

Here in the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, we had a few bad wind/thunderstorms this past week, but today it is sunny and calm, though very chilly. North of the DC metro area, they even had snow overnight!

In my garden, I have a multitude of blooms. Here is my list of what is in flower today:

– Carolina Jasmine
– Redbud Tree
– Lilacs
– Primroses
– Violas/Pansies
– Wild Violets
