Happy Garden Bloggers Bloom Day to Everyone!
Thanks for stopping by and special thanks to Carol at May Dreams for hosting this garden meme where gardeners from around the world post what is blooming in their garden on the 15th of each month. Thanks Carol!
The bigger blooms in my garden are just starting to boom! Irises and peonies are beginning to open.
Also, some newer plants, Verbascum ‘Southern Charm’, Lysimachia atropurpurea ‘Burgandy Loosestrife’, and Geranium pyrenaicum ‘Bill Wallis’ are in bloom. All of these came from Annie’s Annuals in case you’re interested. Another quick note, this lysimachia is not an invasive type.
Now after showing all those ‘cool’ tone flowers I must give some time to the hot colors in my garden. Here is a Geum from mom (so I don’t know the variety) , Ursinia anthemoides ‘Solar Fire’ and Genista lydia, ‘Bangle.’
This garden under my ornamental plum tree has gone from this to this in the last few weeks. I think it is interesting to see how gardens change so dramatically in a short time. I think many times us gardeners don’t fully notice the amount of diversity and change in our outdoor areas because we are always looking at and working in them. I thought these two photos fun to share and they illustrate how gardens change so quickly.
A gardener can’t show all her “pretties” all at one time though so I’ll close my May GBBD post with one last shot of some simple, sweet strawberries blossoms. So fresh and eager to be a part of the May blossom boom!
Do you notice the rapid change and evolution of your garden within a single season? Do you take photos of specific areas and compare them season to season or month to month? What is your favorite season in the garden from the photos you’ve taken?

Just Beautiful!! And your lawn has me green with envy!!
I love that comparison of the same area in two seasons. What a shifting palette we garden artists must (get to) work with.
Lovely pictures of your blooms! I always find it amazing that everything comes up again year after year and my garden turns green again! Some plants like the ferns grow by the hour… My favourite months are May and June, and then September-October, when the changes are most dramatic. The pictures of your cherry tree would make a lovely series for framing… hope to see a summer, autumn and winter version! 🙂
I usually love late May but this year everything is blooming out of whack…so much blooming where you are and mine are still a week or so off…Happy GBBD!
Very nice indeed, to see photographs of what other folk have placed in their garden. A lovely pink on the Peony.
Kind regards to you,
May is such a lovely month when we know that spring has truly arrived where I live in New England. Love your beautiful photos.
A particularly nice iris, but all your photos are lovely as are the blooms they convey… Larry
Gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing!
Love the pictures!
