May Blooms...

This weekend was so beautiful, we spent all day Saturday and Sunday putting out mulch, 6 scoops of mulch. We only have one more bed to do and we will be finished. The rain has stopped us probably for the week. Thursday is our only day this week for a chance of a little sun. It is suppose to rain all weekend. Yuck!!! So I snuck outside for a few shots of some May blooms in between raindrops....
For those of you that follow, Miss Petunia is back up and ready for all the vining flowers to start growing up her skirt. She will have a big basket of flowers in her hands. She has Irish Moss growing on top her head. It will have little white flowers all summer. I have planted candy corn vine, hyacentbean vine, hummingbird vine at her base. She will be blooming like crazy this summer...
This is my herb/bird/butterfly garden. It belonged to my Mother-in-law and when she got ill I took it over for her. That is her house in the background that is in my back yard... This is my second year planting herbs here and they are really looking nice and I have started quite a collection... Here is the Candy Corn vine...
The Clematis In the Secret Garden is starting to vine up the new arbor and really blooming...

Look what a beautiful Face the Columbine has....
This one was new last year and I have No Idea what it is, it is only about 6 inches tall but has spread beautifully and one of the first to bloom this year. If anyone knows what it is please let me know...

Speedwell was one of the first things I planted in the perennial garden in 1995 it is still beautiful in the spring...


Pink Deadnettle, I had no idea until today it was an herb... I need to move a piece to the herb garden. It was used to check bleeding and treatment of menstrual problems and bleeding after childbirth.The Lavenders first blooms....
Honeysuckle is going crazy and the butterflies flock to it. I remember as a child there was a wall of it along the street in front of my house. I loved to watch the butterflies all day long...
White Deadnettle, I love how it looks tucked under plants, the leaves are great...

I Love spring and summer it is so much fun watching everything grow and bloom!!!
Have A Good One,
Lynn

Hi Lynn. It is so good to see Miss Petunia again. She will look lovely in her new frock this summer. ;-) I love your Deadnettle. Mine died out and needs replaced. So much going on now in the gardens. Now if the weather would lets us get into them.

Love your flowers and your garden! Glad to see Miss Petunia is back. I just finished up four scoops of mulch and could have used a little more. A lot of shoveling and I am more than a little sore this week! Thanks for sharing your garden!
