Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

Beware the Ides of Bloom Day! Actually, just joking. There are no assasins growing in the garden at the moment.

It has certainly been an odd season, though. Remember last month when the Pluot bloomed and announced spring? Well, shortly after that happened we had a series of crazy storms including predictions of snow(!) in San Francisco(!) (that snow didn't happen). Even without the snow it has been quite cold (relatively) and I'm not sure those early potatoes are going to hang in...

The bonus of all this wacky weather is that we've had a nice lot of rain for all the plants and reservoirs. Here's hoping that the water table is nicely filled up and when spring decides to spring again, the plants will all thrive in their freshly damp soil!

Without further ado, here's what's blooming now in the MKG:
White flowering currant: Ribes sanguinem (White Icicle)
Golden flowering currant: Ribes aureum

Pink flowering currant- Ribes sanguinem (Claremont Pink)
The orange... almost in bloom
And the Pluot is still going.
