may bloom day
What a weekend! The sun has been shining, temperatures in the upper 80's, people flocking to garden centres ... it's May! But I should preface this bloom day post by saying that some are may "almost in bloom day" photos...
Like this Arbequina Olive tree.
Mediterranean Fan palms are sending out flowers this time of year. It looks like some sort of creepy growth at this point.
Rhodos definitely are putting on a show. This one is my favourite. It's one of the more tropical looking of the bunch.
This one right next to it has a blue tinge to the foliage and a darker pink/red color to the flowers.
Windmill Palms are about to put on a show. This is one of three flowering Trachycarpus fortunei. I just hope that one is a female. My largest palm has been flowering for years but is a male. Fingers crossed....
My newly planted Leccino Olive tree has a few tiny flower buds...
Aloe blooms from a succulent bowl...
The neighbours clematis grows over the fence and flowers on our side. I'm not complaining but you can't help but feel kinda bad.
Hellebores just keep on giving. I love watching the color go from a soft white in early spring to this beautiful lime green.
And last but not least ... blossoms on my peach tree!!
Happy May bloom day everyone!
