May Bloom Day, the Fairest of All
It was hard to wait until the 15th when so many blossoms were opening, but it was worth the wait to see this Amaryllis, blooming in front of a big pot of Begonias:
My fav yellow daylily, Brocaded Gown. This daylily lines the back sides of two beds in the front where White Crape myrtles anchor one end. White Crapes have big fat buds.
Salmon Sheen, which won the Stout Medal in 1959. I was still in High School. Like me, it persists.
What about these? They've been blooming a while but they are still stunning:
Petunias, Larkspur and Rose Campion. Some self seeded, some I sprinkled seed in a timely fashion.
Of course, Oakleaf Hydrangeas are the biggest blooms in the garden just now.
Pink Spiraea is blooming too, echinacea, and pink roses in the distance. True lilies are coming.
Happy Bloom Day.
You can see some blooms not shown here in my Dotty Plants Blog.
