I didn't capture pictures of all of them, just the one that surprised me the most:
|Salvia Van Houttei|
My Blue Elf Aloe bloomed faithfully as it does every Spring, although my Aloe striata (if that's really what it is) hasn't bloomed since we moved here 2 years ago. Not enough sun?

|These Aloe striata(?) at the base of the Yucca were magnificent in my old garden. What gives?|
My Iris have seemed hesitant this Spring...but Dashing and Polished Manners have popped up everywhere! (I'd swear I bought more variety from Schreiner's??)
|Polished Manners Iris|
My Patio Peach is coming back! Fingers crossed I get little peaches this year (like I did last year) and they survive to be eaten (unlike last year - this time I won't leave the gate open and let the deer eat them).

And I saved the best for last: my Canna Wyoming is blooming!

I'd had them in the front garden, and the *#@$%! deer ate the blooms before I ever got to enjoy them. I moved a few to the back, and even though it's shadier I'd say they're definitely happier. I know I am!
In other exciting news, my passalong Castor Bean has bloomed! I'll need to move it to the new side bed outside the fence so Daisy doesn't eat the seeds, but for now we're both pleased about where it is and what it's doing. (Me and the plant; Daisy doesn't much care.)

Happy Garden Blogger's Bloom Day, everyone! Tremendous thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting this every month! I can't wait to see what's blooming for everyone else.
