Garden Blogger's Bloom Day for May 2011

Cheiranthus allionii/Siberian Wallflower (p)
Carol at May Dream Gardens started this ritual way back in the day (you can read about it here) and this is my first time participating.

I have no idea what this is but it's the first thing to bloom from the wildflower seeds my grandson planted last August in what was to be a meadow garden.  We now call this "garden" The Abyss (more about that in future posts if I can stop hyperventilating every time I think about the challenge that awaits us).

If I follow Heather's lead, I'm supposed to post a photo of everything that's in bloom today.  I'll try to do that.

But the rains are threatening and I have three Japanese Barberry shrubs to plant in the Japanese Garden before we see the H2O.


  1. Hi Wendy - not sure if my post will get up, but came from Gina's blog to see yours. I think your flower is some kind of wallflower/Erysimum... does it have a nice scent? One that's found in many wildflower mixes is Siberian wallflower.

  2. Nice orange flowers- whatever they are! Happy GBBD :)

  3. Annie, just saw your post today. Yes... this is cheiranthus allionii (Siberian wallflower). You know your stuff!
