I'm actually on time for Bloom Day this month. Lots of color emerging in the yard and everything seems to be growing a foot taller every night.
The confederate jasmine continues to reach up, stretching to reach the deck. The other night, a big wind that we had blew the topmost tendril down so now it has to redo that last stretch up to the floor of the deck
Rock rose is blooming pink in the new bed I created this fall. These rock roses were originally planted in a deer accessible bed and I couldn't understand why they looked so stunted and never taller than 4 inches. It finally dawned on me that those stumps were actually gnawed ends of the plant and I moved them. I hear them sigh with happiness whenever I visit them.
Coleus, while not technically "blooming", are such vivid colors that I can't help but show them
Day lilies. No idea what type. But man, they're pretty.
Purple clematis. This is one that I transplanted from a pot it had been in for years. Had to literally break the pot to get it out.
Now it's growing alongside "Golden Showers" rose.
The yellows and oranges have taken over from the pinks in my wildflower/septic field. Here you see sunflowers (no idea which kind, lord knows I've thrown dozens of packets out there in a survival of the fittest contest) and Mexican hat now towering over the gentle pink primrose.

My Rose of Sharon's first bloom
Red columbine, had no idea what the color would be when I bought them. I ended up with a purple variety and a red. OK then.
Mexican oregano. God, I love this plant. Beautiful shrub. Blooms the whole summer and VERY deer-proof.
And what's blooming in the veggie garden?
Squash. Lots of squash.
I have both yellow straightneck and patty pan. I saw today that the patty pans are just starting. The little yellows are already making their way onto our dinner menus.
Here are the soyu cucumbers, beginning their climb up the trellis.
Strawberry patch, still going strong.
Other things that are blooming but were not exciting enough in pictures:
Mexican Bush Sage
I'm looking forward to visiting your blog to see what's blooming!
