May is when the purple Columbine are at their best. They love to re-seed and pop up in different places each year.
|Columbine and my garden statue (we named her Winnie). |
(Pretend you don’t see the neighbor’s play-set in the background.)
It is also when the Peonies show their pretty faces. These white ones are actually in my front yard (mixed in with the Azaleas).
|We had a lot of rain after this picture was taken. |
Unfortunately, the rain spoiled the rest of the buds.
|I love the little reddish bits in the white peonies.|
|Taken from the back of the flower garden, looking towards our shed.|
(That’s the neighbor’s big house in the background.)
|View of the flower garden from the steps of my back porch.|
|The arbor with climbing Hydrangea, pink climbing roses and purple Clematis.|
That’s white Dianthus on the bottom right.
|Fine Wine Weigela with roses and Catmint in the background.|
|Purple Spiderwort, Catmint and pink roses.|
|Siberian Iris and light pink Abraham Darby roses. Yellow roses in background.|
|I had to include a picture of the Smoke Bush that I planted last year.|
I love the changing colors of the leaves as the sun hits them.
