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!
