It's hard to pick favorites. Every day as I find a new bloom it becomes my favorite. I know my two roses have been shown many times before, but really can you ever see too many pictures of such beautiful flowers? Belinda's Dream and Knockout Radrazz have been blooming since February. This month they have been more beautiful than ever. The Florida Gold sedum is blooming tiny yellow flowers which were a complete surprise to me. The blanket flowers were a little late in showing off but late April brought an abundance of blooms. Bleeding Heart clerodendrum is a new addition to the back fence in the shady corner and it is doing a great job of brightening that dark spot. The pentas which have been a mainstay for color at My Garden Path were knocked to the ground this winter and are only just now putting out leaves about 6" above ground. Tall red pentas were purchased and planted earlier this month to give the butterflies a reason to return. Those pentas are such workhorses. They just pump out blooms constantly. When the purple, pink and white ones finally grow back to their former glory butterflies should abound once again. I love to grow several different salvias and this Victoria Blue is a favorite of mine which just started putting out its long purple plumes earlier this month.
I hope all my gardening friends are enjoying many, many blooms in their April gardens.
