Since May 2007 I have joined many other Garden Bloggers throughout the world in posting on what’s in flower in our gardens in the middle of the month. This idea was the brain child of Carol at May Dreams Gardens in Indianapolis, USA who still hosts it. Her posting links us all together with the help of a clever linking widget. It has been fascinating to browse the other gardens.
Bloom Day has also been a great way to keep a record of what’s in flower month by month and now year by year. As twelve postings for one label is rather a big page to load I have re-labelled all my postings so you can browse through blooms monthly going back the years. This should be interesting for me to see at a glance what I might expect (or not) each month too.
If you are new to my garden this will give you a quick guide to some plants growing and flowering in Scotland. This is a very small sample of what does grow in Scotland and throughout the UK. What I should perhaps point out, if you are a visitor outside the UK, is that there can be differences in plant growth throughout the UK. For example a garden in London will likely have the same plants flowering approx two weeks before they will flower in my garden.
Welcome to my small Scottish Garden.
