Now it’s time to showcase what’s blooming in the gardens of those who love flowers but don’t have their own blog, the April 2014 Garden Nonbloggers’ Bloom Day.

This month we were lucky enough to hear from Ginny Burton, of Burton Optician in DC.

Says Ginny:

This has been a horrible winter on the east coast, but here’s what’s blooming chez Burton:


I’m very pleased with the redbud. It was a volunteer that I nurtured for years. It looks pretty with the ancient weeping cherry (a natural weeper, not a graft) that’s doing its best to beautify our corner.


Happy to be outside!


Most of the dafs have bloomed out, but these must be a late variety.

Happy Spring to all!>>>>

Thanks so much, Ginny! Your flowers are gorgeous! I enjoyed seeing what’s blooming in your neck of the woods. We don’t see too many redbuds out here so I appreciated that.

That’ll do it for this month’s Garden Nonbloggers’ Bloom Day. I’ll be back tomorrow, hope to see you here.

About Me

Hi! My name is Liza. Welcome to my blog and thanks for visiting! I'm a Midwestern gal now living in Arizona, after many years of living in and owning a plant care business in New Mexico.

Plants are living, breathing creatures, and if they're indoor plants, they are 100% dependent on human care. They cannot water themselves.

I can beautify your home, office, or patio with plants and flowers. I have 13 years of experience growing plants, and friendships.

Please let me know if you have questions or if you would like help with your plants or garden. You can reach me at lizatheplantlady (at) gmail (dot) com or follow me on Twitter, Lizawheeler7.

All photos are mine unless otherwise noted. All content is also entirely my hard work. If you'd like to use any content or photos, all you have to do is ask. If you take without asking, you are a thief. And thieves suck. So don't suck. We have a deal? Good.
