Magnolia 'Royal Star'
Welcome to my zone 7 northeastern garden in April for another Garden Blogger's Bloom Day. It is spring at last and a very unusual spring it has been. It was a winter where the ground never froze and only a few inches of snow graced the landscape. It has been very warm with temperatures way above normal. The garden is in full speed ahead. Let us take a look around to see what is blooming!
The Magnolia 'Royal Star' is exceptionally beautiful this year with its mildly fragrant white blooms. Vibernum carlesi (Korean Spice Vibernum) displays its pinkish-white blooms and its fragrance can be noticed across a distance.
|Pink Weeping Cherry (Prunus subhirtella Pendula)|
My Pink Weeping Cherry tree ( Prunus subhirtelli Pendula) highlights the corner of the property with its light pink blooms on cascading branches.
The grape hyacinths bloom in the warm of the sun.
The daffodils are in bloom.
|Thundercloud Plum blossoms|
Here are the first blossoms on my new Thundercloud Plum. We planted it last fall once an old maple tree had to be removed. I always wanted one of these beautiful trees and am enjoying it already!
|Kwanzan Cherry blossoms|
The Cherry blossoms are lovely...just love the blooms in spring.
|Spring Garden-Magnolia 'Royal Star' and Spirea 'Gold Flame' in Bloom|
The gardens are coming to life. The gold mound spirea are getting their foliage and the lilies emerge from their winter sleep.
The forthysia show off their bright yellow display.
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my April garden.
Be sure to visit our hostess Carol at May Dreams Gardens and see what's blooming in other gardens.
As Always...Happy Garden Blogger's Bloom Day and Happy Gardening!
