The Garden in May

The Pink Dogwood

Hitchhiking Viola
Came in a potted Peony I purchased.

Chinese Red Poppy


Bridal Veil

Double White Lilac
(I've named it Breath of Heaven ~it's scent is so divine!)

Double purple lilac



Blue Columbine
(I'm saving seeds of this one. They will be available


Rescued Rhododendron


Ajuga (with bee) in the 'wild' (read=neglected, unweeded, forgotten) part of the garden.



Solomon's Seal in the shade of the Banana Apple Tree.



Ages old Red Rhododendron nicknamed "Grandma's Lipstick"
(My Grandmother's favorite shade!)



Pink Bleeding Hearts


Green Hellebore Seedpods.

Dainty Sweet Woodruff.

Winesap Apple Blossom.



Diminutive Weed!
(This little plant is sooo tiny ~ the stem stands about 3 inches tall!
The wee little flowers are so precious! I don't have the heart to tear it out!)

Dear Lady Farmer,

Ah, what a breath of fresh air! All the colors of the rainbow, combining to make a veritable Eden :). You must have a hard time going inside this time of year!

Diane said...

I know what you mean...some weeds are just so sweet! I don't suppose God considers them "weeds", do you? We humans put too many labels on things.
Blessings,
Diane
