May in our area…
usually is a colorful month bursting with flowering trees, shrubs, perennials and bulbs. Take the tour of images and see if the garden changes through the month. Images start mid month since I was out of the state during the beginning of May.
Gallery above May 11, carpet the front garden. Below a week later, the yellow border tulips lose the flowers yet later varieties flower.
Viburnum, Hosta, primrose, fern, Jacob’s Ladder and a host of others start to fill the shade gardens.
Two galleries above May 19th, lilacs, viburnum, Allium, flax, iris, and yarrow all make an entrance. Tulips and lilac come and go with the heat. Earlier, many more tulips. By the end of the month, the phlox and Allium start to fade.
Gallery above May 25.
May 30th. the lupine start blooming. The poppies are readying to welcome in June.
I hope to follow the garden again in June in a similar manner. It gives a greater idea how the garden changes when you can see a month-long view.
