Hard to believe it is already halfway into the month of May. In the world of garden bloggers, we set aside the 15th of each month to profile what is blooming and share it through Carol at May Dreams Gardens--so head over there to see who else is posting their lovely blooms for the month of May.
Most of my blooms have been posted in the last few days...I have such a crazy schedule right now that I didn't even realize it was the 15th!! Most of my garden is still dominated by the color purple....from the Tradescantia to the Lavandula angustifolia 'Munstead' (a new addition and in a container on the deck)
Some of the showiest plants in the garden are foliage color. Here is an update on the containers from the front porch.... Waiting for the hidden Bronze Fennel to spurt....
In the front garden, under the dining room windows, I have mostly azaleas, hosta, Heuchera, Artemesia 'Silver Queen'. I added a Weigela 'French Lace' that was on the bargain table in the fall. Seems to be happy there. Nestled next to the Weigela is a new Japanese Painted Fern, Athyrium niponicum Pictum.
So Happy Bloom Day to everyone........we are off to another college graduation. Lots of kids to be proud of this spring!!
