April didn’t seem to have the showers to bring the May flowers. Seems the rain is catching up now. The daffodils and tulips are long gone, yet wonderfully, they are replaced with the iris. Oh, how I love iris. They seem to be a bit high maintenance with all the dividing, and care that is needed. But that bloom!! The dwarf iris start out first, this is Posing.
Another dwarf that stands out is Jive.
The tall bearded are absolutely the most dramatic of May flowers, they just have that mojo! They are just beginning to open. I have divided them out and moved so many, that I don’t have all the names. Not sure about the name of this one. It is just a pleasing lavender.
Iris have the most wonderful shades of blue of any flower in the garden.
This one is Secret Service.
I have quit a few Herrons about the lake, and it is hard to capture them in a photo. I was able to get this one, with zooming in, so the picture is a bit fuzzy, but it still is so cool. The Herrons certainly have mojo.
Back to the iris. This one is Matt McNames
Not quite open yet, but what a great blend of color. I think this is Secret Rites.
The poppies are showing off.
The Lupine are wonderful this May. This Lupine is Manhattan Lights. very different from the traditional blue Lupine.
Every day that I walk about the gardens, I am seeing the scapes of daylilies, and that is thrilling!
The birdbath planter is ready.
This bottle is pretty by day, and then lights up at night. I must say that I didn’t make it. I found it calling my name out at a local garden center.
Another planter finished. This one is a bit tricky to do, but well worth the effort. The flowers will fill in and it will be a sphere of blooms.
Bowie waits for me. Happy Gardening and hoping you have lots of May Mojo.
