April 15 bloom and tax day together!!!!

For those of us who live in the states April 15 is an important day. It is the last day to file our 2007 federal income tax.
I hope these blooms ease your tax blues.

Dahlberg Daisies, one of my all time favorites.
The basket was gift from a friend. I think they are Calinbrachoa.

I got Dianthus last week from my local nursery.
A surprise this morning, I found this yellow Bromeliad
This white Penta has a pinkish center
The Verbena ground cover is filling up nicely.
Blue Porterflower a favorite of bees and butterflies.
The first Thryallis flowers of the year.

I like that bromeliad, bright and yellow like our daffodils and forsythia up north here in the midwest.

Thanks for joining in for bloom day.

Your flowers are bright and colorful and cheering. We are having our cold snap now, we'll see what has survived. I love the callibrachoas, we even had one winter over. They come is many colors and love the heat of summer, especially in a container.

I love the combo of the Dianthus colors. I've never seen a yellow Bromeliad - it's really neat.

Rusty, Yuck... tax day... we definitely waited until today to send our payment to Uncle Sam... never a happy day.

Very nice potted flowers... your hanging basket gift is very cheery.

I hope you are getting some of this cooler air we've been enjoying the last couple of days... it will be short-lived but I'm getting as much done as I can while it's still nice out.
