There has been a lot going on here in Rochester NY.   But here we are at April’s Garden Bloggers Bloom Day sponsored by  Carol at May Dreams Garden. there are daffodils blooming their socks off, an occasional violet popping up in the grass. The drama is watching the rhubarb appear and evolve from nubbins to  the emergence of very wrinkled leaves to the promise of full flown stalks and leaves.

My very favorite blooms right  about now are those in the blue/violet shades. Later in the spring this would include some wonderful Delphinium. ( If only I had some). But right now they are represented by Pulminaria and a member of the  borage family. (help Remy).
