" All things are possible in May. " May be, May be not. First we have near 90 and then 45, extreme temps that reap havoc on plants in the garden. One day the Magnolia is in bloom the next day ; gone. Tulips and daffodils droop their lovely heads in exasperation.
This is the second season for my new "blue lawn " ( vinca ) seen below on the right. The Korean Azalea has produced its lovely bell-shaped lilac flowers, the creeping phlox looks lovely and the wisteria is about to break bud. Airy Brunnera's beautiful blue flowers nod above its silver leaves. And last but not least, the golden leaves of ' autumn moon' maple have finally emerged fromt their long winter's sleep. And that's just in the front yard.
Meanwhile, out back, blooms are breaking out all over.
