Another May, Joys of Bloom Day

This was a strange first two weeks of May -- cooler than usual. Some blooms are right on time.

Hydrangeas: Oakleaf Hydrangea and the ubiquitous Big Blue.
Echinacea is everywhere.
Annuals: Catchfly and Larkspur, with perennial Coreopsis at left.
Corn Poppies at right. California Poppies were still 'asleep' when I was out there this morning.
 Perennials: Echinacea, Salvia farinacea and Gerbera Daisy.
Brocaded Gown with purple Nicotiana, Siloam Ury Winniford, either Superlative or
Kent's Favorite II and Salmon Sheen Daylilies.
Have a Bodacious Bloom Day!

  1. You have LOADS of beautiful blooms, of course the roses take the cake. Love the brilliant red of the gerbera.

  3. Hi NellJean, again lovely parade of blooms. I haven't used that word yet 'bodacious', haha, i will search first for the meaning. And thanks for your information of propagating my gaillardia, as i don't want to loose it. My US friend blogger who gave that also sent clematis, echinacea, coneflowers, and a lot more, but it is only gaillardia that stayed well. She also sent lately some crinums and of course hippeastrum.

  4. Love the hydras....they seem late this year

  5. Hasn't this spring been gorgeous? The plants have all appreciated the cool moist environment. Your roses are pretty. Happy GBBD.

  6. WOW...everything is just beautiful! The colors are so vibrant. Love it!!

  7. WOW...I can't believe your Echinacea are blooming already...and that huge drift of them...stunning!

  8. Gorgeous blossoms. Your May garden is extraordinary.


I look forward to comments and questions and lively discussion of gardening and related ideas.
