Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - March 15, 2015

Here's whats happening in my small space urban patio garden here in Zone 10b, Pasadena, California on this March 15, 2015, Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.  

This month I've decided to focus mostly on the patio and not what's blooming in the front of the house.  I won't write too much and just let the photos speak for themselves.  I took all of these with my iPhone.  I've been spending a lot of my weekends at the local public gardens focusing mostly on my photography.  If you're interested in seeing my photographs, you can visit my Flickr Page.

Here's what's going on in the garden:






















This Lupine is actually on my front porch, but thought it was worth noting since I am trying it in a pot to see how it does.  So far so good.

My garden on March 8, 2015

Here are some flowers and plants I have on the front porch and in front of our bungalow:

Dusty Miller - "Silver Dust".  I love the silvery foliage.

Beautiful red Geranium.
Hollyhock bud - This one will be "Henry Eight Pink"
Cosmos.

Pincushion Flower.
Gerbera Daisy.  

Petunias.
Borage - from the Botanical Interest seed packet.
 Valerian - Garden Heliotrope -- I saved this from the raised bed when the landlord paved over my garden.  Looks like it is doing okay.  Hope to see it flower those wonderful white blooms!
 Foxgloves.
In the Patio Garden:
Alyssum - "Snow Crystals"
Delphinium.
 Larkspur (with Fairy Primrose, bottom left)
