I would rather think of today as Bloom Day instead of the dreaded tax day. This past month has been unusually cold and rainy for our area. The flowers seem to really enjoy the cooler temperatures and brief rain storms. The violas, alyssum, and poppies seem especially happy.
I was surprised by this year’s columbines. I grew them from seed and planted them last year and was very underwhelmed. I had foolishly assumed they wouldn’t grow in my zone and gave away my seeds. This year they took off and now I have these gorgeous purple and yellow columbines.
