What's blooming in the garden on the 15th of the month
Projects (including working in the garden,) have been taking time away from blogging this spring.
Nothing much on this bloom day, my 16th since blogging. Bearded iris galore, but you've seen them last year. May is a dead time in my garden before most impressive perennials get going and after the spring bulbs. So I tried for some smaller closeups, but need to get a new camera - this pocket Cannon Elph I used for all my photos over the past 12 years is beginning to show age with less and less clarity.
|Kalmia latifolia 'Sarah' is "one of the reddest mountain laurels" according to the catalog.|
This is one of the first plants I bought years ago after moving into my house.
|Iris hollandica 'Discovery'. I divided one clump last fall into three this spring. |
They are not as impressive (spread apart), but maybe next year...
|Add unknown geranium sanguineum. Spreads like crazy, blooming intermittently throughout summer.|
|Geranium macrorrhizum 'Bevan's variety'|
|Camassia leichtlinii never takes a bad picture|
|Couldn't resist adding an annual I really like this year - petunia 'Phantom'|
