This Week in the Garden. . .

May is always a particularlly beautiful month in the garden.  So many of my perennials are full of buds just waiting to burst forth.

In the next couple of weeks the garden will truly come alive with Lilacs, Iris, Peonies, Poppies, Canterbury Bells, Daisies, Larkspur, Delphiniums, Hollyhocks, and more.  The anticipation is about all I can stand. lol!

Last week I shared some of my bloomers.  A lot of them are still putting on a show, but I thought I would share what is new this week.

I was going to delete this photo because it was blurry.  But then my granddaughter said she thought it was kind of ‘cool’‘

The steppables in my side seating area are bursting with tiny blossoms.

Hubby gave me a rose tree for Mothers Day.  I planted it in a thrift find industrial pot.  It’s loaded with little buds.

My Spring trailing plants have lasted for weeks.  They are loving all of the rain we have had lately!

And look at this cute wicker teapot filled with succulents I bought when I was in St. George.

Doesn’t it just make you happy to stroll thru the garden?  I do it every morning.  It’s my daily cup!

I am so envious. We are still in a drought and now we are in 90 degree weather - not common for us. My garden is not looking how I would like it.

Your flowers are gorgeous.

Hi Jann,
So pretty all the lovely blooms and colors. I had most of my garden planted and then snow this morning. What this is the middle of May!!!!! So the flowers all had to come inside until it warms back up tomorrow. Too crazy. You are so lucky to have the nice weather.
Looks gorgeous.
Kris

I really enjoyed your garden and containers. Love your selections. I LOVE to see unusual...to me plants. I'm always looking for something new for my garden. What a great idea to use a stock pot for a container and I LOVE LOVE the wicker cup and saucer with the succulents.I may have to copy your idea.:)
I think Michael's had some wicker coffee cups.

Erlene A said...

Wow you have such a beautiful garden. We live in a desert area and I miss having lush plants like that.
