You don't know what you got till it's gone. Looking for likely subjects for GBBD has become a shorter process since moving. Without my large gardens and living in a rental home temporarily it makes for quick work.
Although I think about my "old" garden, I haven't been too sad. You see our new neighborhood is a community of kindred gardening spirits. You might even say, that around here everyday is Bloom Day. Each time I take a different way home I'm treated to the sight of more and more lovely gardens filled to the brim with beautiful blooms.
Meanwhile in this yard I find myself grateful for flowers I might have dismissed before. Suddenly I appreciate the ordinary orange lilies growing alongside the yellow siding. A few of the plants I brought with me are blooming too. And on a side note, the tree peonies ("How Not to Transplant a Tree Peony") I blogged about last week are showing signs of recovery with a flush of new growth.
Here's my small contribution to this Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, a wonderful creation of Carol's at May Dreams Gardens. And also Happy Anniversary to my husband of 27 years.
