May Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day

You would be here for a long visit if I showed you every little blossoming perennial and shrub, so I made two collages: one with roses, some coming into the second flush of bloom, and some of the daylilies just getting underway with some of their companions.

1st row: Rose des Violettes, Carefree Delight pruned as standard, & White Dawn
2nd Row: Livin’ Easy, a little wild rose, and Red Cascade

Daylilies include Kent’s Favorite II and an ancient red with no name; Brocaded Gown and Inner View, both shown with Stokesia. The close up of Inner View was an FFO.

Fat buds of true lilies are about to burst into bloom along with more daylilies. Please do come back later to see them.

    I’m glad to see someone who really embraces roses – too many gardeners by me (in the Mid-Atlantic) have cheucked all but the KnockOuts from their gardens.

    Happy bloom day! Wish I could smell the roses, they look so inviting. And, in case you don’t make it back to tmousecmouse, we are two bloggers with one garden each. Each mouse can really handle only one garden.

    What a gorgeous place you have! Wow. Love the collages.

    I’m not familiar with Stokesia. I’ll have to look it up and see if it could survive here in Austin.

    Hi Nell Jean, what fabulous roses and well, everything! I bought Brocaded Gown last year, love that color. Our lily buds are swelling up nicely too. Can’t wait, for both of us. šŸ™‚

    Hello! The collages are perfect for showcasing a lot of bloom! I am thrilled to have Red cascade…it's my first year with it and I can't believe it has blooms. All tips appreciated! I love the clematis climbing through the rose…I think they are ideal companions. Thanks for stopping by C&L! Happy Bloom Day…gail

    What beautiful photos of a beautiful garden. I especially like your roses. I can only grow the hardiest, usual blooming once a season.

    Georgia is lovely in May!

    You have a beautiful garden. We have a week or two until the roses open here in my zone 6 garden. Thanks for the great pictures.

    What a great month for GBBD.
