Welcome to the 7th annual Bloomin' Tuesday!
I'm going to start this week with a pet peeve of mine. I started Bloomin' Tuesday to share garden photos with every day trial and error gardeners like me. I have enjoyed doing this for several years. It seems the new trend for a couple years is to see how many followers we can get. Personally, I don't care! I don't enjoy being a vehicle for those bloggers that are using Bloomin' Tuesday for that purpose. I get very irritated when I go to a blog that does one post a week and has a list of parties they are involved in for the week. I ask that you put a link to my blog just so your followers can enjoy and possibly join our tour. I used to comment on every post I went to, now I comment on those that leave me a comment. I'm sorry if some of you are offended but I am entitled to my opinion. I'm also sorry I found it necessary to post this on the first Tuesday of 2013 but I know that most of the guilty ones are only here on Bloomin' Tuesday. I've also realized that they don't read my post when they sign up so this year I will be removing these posts.
Now let's get to the fun!
I showed all my bloomers last week so this week I'm showing some of the lovely flowering trees and shrubs that are blooming around the city.
