Garden Bloggers Bloom Day 3-15-08

Hyacinth Woodstock


Carol at May Dreams Gardens is the wonderful person that created Bloom Day. Go visit her blog and see other bloggers who blogged today about their blooms.

I pretty much have the same thing I had last bloom day. My balcony doesn't get many blooms. Maybe next month there will be something different. I sure do wish my seedlings would grow faster. I much be doing something wrong because I feel like my plants from seed don't grow as fast as others who grow from seed. Even my school project seedlings are growing faster then ones I've had planted for the same amount of time.

The Hyacinth wood stocks have blooms. Mine don't seem to be growing more then this. This photo was from a few days ago. Now my flowers are fried and crispy. I'm not sure if it's from the weather or if I just don't water enough for them to keep their flowers from crisping.

begonia
Cocktail Vodka Begonia


The always blooming Begonia. These have had blooms for months and months now. I love how the flowers have this sparkle in them.

knotweed
Knotweed


Another plant that has been in bloom for months. The Knotweed took off but has stopped growing. The blooms keeping coming and stay on for a long long time before drying out.

basil
Sweet Basil


Basil is in bloom. Most of the leaves are gone because there was a frost that really got to the leaves. I just took off the icky leaves and left it alone. I'm sure the leaves will come back. This plant was almost junked after the frost because I had thought it had killed the plant. The next day a flower showed up so I'll leave it alone for now.

hyacinth
Grape Hyacinth


The Grape Hyacinths have been going for about a month now. The bottom of the blooms are getting dried up. Soon they will probably be gone.

hibiscus
Hibiscus


I just got this plant yesterday. While working my manager asked me if I wanted a Hibiscus. How could I refuse a good plant. This was supposed to go to Walmart but was left behind so it is now at my home. It's not bloom but buds for blooms.

Snapdragon
Snapdragon


The last for this months blooms is my Snapdragon. This had previous blooms but that stem broke off in the wind. I hope that it does not happen again with these blooms. Maybe I will get lucky again and get a seed pod. This time I'm wishing for better luck that the seed pod will dry out and I can have seeds.

That's all for this months Bloom Day. Nothing too exciting blooming over here.

Did you say your balcony doesn't get many blooms? You did a fine job of capturing your blooms. They are lovely.

Very pretty flowers, and nice photography too.

Shopping today with my sister we saw hyacinths blooming inside a store. We smelled them before we saw them. I love their fragrance.

Your photography today was just stunning, I really enjoyed this post.

Great job showing the blooms, thanks! Maybe your seedlings need more light, if your other ones are doing better? I love the glittery petals of the begonias also. And lucky you, a free hibiscus with buds even.
