April 2010 Bloom Day

Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day
What's blooming in the garden on the 15th of each month

This day, I got the urge to be more creative with the photos. Lighting from behind the azalea, lighting casting shadows to bring out highlights, chartreuse all alone among the red, and depth of field changing.

It is a toss-up on which photo to submit for this month's photo contest Green World theme. Please help me decide.

Doublefile Viburnum buds

St. John's Wort 'Brigadoon'

Azalea 'Snow' Dogwood

Garden Calendar:
  • Blooming: dogwood, azalea, poet & chiffon daffodils, grape hyacinth
  • Seedlings: tomatoes, pepper, cleome, millet sprouted

I like the Doublefile Viburnum buds!

I vote for the dogwoods, but part of that is that they seem so exotic to me since I don't have that kind nearby. But the little field of viburnums is great too and a very close second. Happy bloom day!

The st johns worm is nice with red but I vote for the virburnum buds photo it shows more GREEN and is interesting. Go dogwoods!

Doublefile Viburnum buds definitely. The repetition of shapes & variations of green make it a winner.

I like the viburnum buds photo myself. But everything else looks mighty pretty to me as well!
