May Flowers


I love how the colors of early summer are so much more vibrant than the pastels of spring. Lots of red and purple with a little yellow thrown in.  Each season has its own flair.

For the first time, my Peter's Bee Balm (purchased last year) is blooming, and I love the way it complements the cone flower behind it!  I purchased one small plant last year, and realized I should have purchased five.  But when I went back to get more, they were all gone.  This first year, the plant has already spread, so I am hoping that next year, they will fill in even better!  I love the firecracker look of its flower.


The Yucca's are especially beautiful this year, and I love the way they bookend my garden! 



My new (from last year) Butterfly Blue Pincushion Flowers were getting lost among the blue bonnets, but since we finally made it to Memorial Day Weekend, I pulled up all the blue bonnets, giving them a chance to shine.



And the Lantana in the front bed, probably the first plants I planted at the house, are always a joy this time of year!


And for history's sake, here is a front on look at the garden.  From this angle, you can see that I still need to fill the bed in some, since the blue bonnets have been pulled up. But from the side angle, it looks great!

First Summer Project

I wasn’t intending for this to be my first summer project, but with the wet ground from yesterday’s rain, and the cool morning temperatures, I didn’t think there would be a better time.

The mountain laurels have outgrown the small bed we made for them years ago, so I expanded it by pulling up about two feet of grass all around the bed.  It took around four hours.  I am exhausted, but think it looks a lot better.

Spring Flowers!

Winter is finally firmly in the rear view mirror, and the first bright blooms of spring are popping up.

A Time of Hope

After such a cold winter, we are more than ready for spring.  Every day, I walk the path of my gardens looking to see what new sprouts I see.

Copper Canyon Daisies


This is my third or fourth year with these daisies.  The first year, they bloomed beautiful, but nothing since.  I was afraid we would miss out on another year, but lo and behold, in the last week, they started to really shine.
