Today is Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day; Carol at May Dreams Garden invites us to share photographs of what is blooming in our gardens on the fifteenth of each month.
Much is happening in our garden as plants are coming to life and bloom. The first peony to open is Itoh peony ‘Keiko.’ (Run your mouse over the photos for identification).

The clematis are also starting to open. It looks like we will have a good crop this year.
Clematis ‘Etoile Violette’
Smaller plants are also playing a colorful role.
Dianthus gratianopolitanus ‘Bath’s Pink’
Phlox sublata ‘Emerald Blue’ and Candytuft
Weigela florida ‘Wine and ‘Roses’
Lantana ‘Banana Peach’
Azaleas are blooming everywhere. This is a remarkable Encore azalea ‘Autumn Twist,’ which puts out two distinct blossoms on the same plant.
