The rain is back today after a nice stretch of sunny, warm weather so I can't really complain. Besides I'm not suffering from tornadoes as so many are. My sympathies to those who are affected. I thought I'd share a few of my May bloomers.
Phlox asurgens 'Wagon Wheel' is a creeping phlox. I keep it in a container.
It puts out its main bloom in May and then sporadic bloom throughout the summer.
Thalictrum aquilegifolium is a spring bloomer with great foliage.
I like how it reseeds.
Syringa x 'Tinkerbell' is just finishing up. I was blessed by its sweet fragrance.
I photographed this a few posts ago but couldn't resist a repeat photo.
I just love this Jacob's Ladder. No fragrance, Catherine but it's got everything else.
Heucherella 'Sun Spot'
Native Bleeding Heart [Dicentra sp.]
A native iris blossom.
My very first rose of the season, 'Therese Bugnet'
My first blossom of pink California Poppy.
Verbascum. Ooh I love these!
Variegated Weigela. Btw, this plant makes a splendid, fragrant cut flower.
I've got some next to me right now. Yum!
Solanum crispum 'Glasnevin' is a Zone 8 perennial and blooms nonstop.
These are just some overwintered snaps that were in a pot I purchased at a garage sale.
And finally, Argyranthemum
