May Blooms Boom!

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?
