A family emergency kept me away from home for a few days during Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, but in the spirit of better late than never, here are some pictures of what's blooming in mid-May in my New Jersey garden (zone 6b). Check out all of the bloom day posts from around the world over at May Dreams Garden.
EDITOR'S NOTE: In my husband's haste, he uploaded some pictures for bloom day of flowers that were no longer in bloom on the fifteenth (some daffodils, daphne, pasque flower, fritillaria negre, crown fritillaria), so those pictures have been removed.

Just wanted to know if you would be open to selling advertising on your blog to related gardening sites. If yes, please get in touch with me as I would be interested in buying an ad. I could not find an email address on your blog which is why I am commenting here. Please feel free to delete this comment. Thank you!

Great photos! My daffodils have been done for a while, same for the lilac...but the peony just finished! Funny what a cooler spring does to the timing of blooms!

Thanks for sharing all your knowledge of gardening. I find your gardens very inspiring! I am in CT with zone 6a and hope to one day have as many gardens to name as you have.

Hey! How did I miss bloom day and when is the next one? We definitely share the same tastes when it comes to plant selection. At first I thought I was looking at my own blog :^)
