I have been sooo busy lately!
End of school field trips, "graduation" for my 5th grader, appointments, you name it!
Lots of gardening......
get ready for photo overload.
I thought I would share with you what is flowering in my gardens in the month of May.
This is from the same plant. I love how some of them are pink with yellow centers and then some are pink with pink and yellow centers. Do you see the difference? These are my favorite.
Clematis in the front yard.
More peonies. This bunch comes up to my chest! They are huge.
These are also located in the front yard.
Their perfume permeates the whole front walkway and porch.
Tree peony, also in the front.
I planted two climbing roses last year and I am so happy they are flowering and growing. They are about 5 feet tall already!
They are looped around this chippy arbor my husband surprised me with 2 years ago for our anniversary.
So sweet :)
Not sure what this is but it has spread through my whole back garden. I am happy about that.
Purple clematis in back yard.
Another clematis in back yard.
This is my favorite rose.
It has made it through the gale force winds we have been having here in Colorado.
It has been beaten and harassed but will soon open to be beautiful.
It starts out this pale apricot/pink color and once it opens fully it will be a creamy white.
And....it smells AMAZING!
New white peony.
Birdhouse planter I made last year.
I added new annuals to it this year and it is a great spot of color on my patio.
Corner of the patio, I will be showing the whole thing soon!
Yellow and pink rose.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my gardens in May.
I have no idea of the name of so many of them.
Fourteen years ago when I had this house built there was just dirt,
I didn't know what an annual or perennial was.
By trial and error my gardens are now so enjoyable.
People walk by and ask me all the time what is this flower or why won't there flowers grow or just to tell me they enjoy walking by and seeing my yard.
It is so fun to have others enjoying it as well!
(Wow I just said 4 versions of "enjoy"!) :)
