Zone 4 End of May Flowers, Lettuce in The Paths and a Storm

Posted May 24 2010 8:28pm
We have had a very late spring.  May 15th is our last official frost date. We have had so much more rain than normal. Just as well that I usually wait until June 1st to plant the garden. This weekend I took my new camera out of the box and I am having so much fun! IMG_0027
Woolly Speedwell Veronica Pectinata is a living mulch in much of my garden. Below is a close up of this wonderful xeric groundcover.

See the little bee. I am so enjoying my new camera.



Lettuce in the paths
Self-sown lettuce grows all over the garden.

The warmth of the wall protects these little surprises

What a pretty yellow and red tulip this is. See the tear drop of rain

Pink and green a perfect combination.  This afternoon we had hailstorms, wind, tornado warnings and tornado watches.

Alley turned into riverFor a few moments the alley next to our house was a flowing river. Notice the white hail. IMG_0080
More hail and our walkway turned into a flowing stream. But notice the yellow tulips. When the skies turned dark the tulips close their petals and stood up to the storm.
