Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: May 15, 2015

Yea!!!!  It’s my first GBBD of the season!  As always, a shout must go out to May Dreams Gardens for creating this opportunity for people all over the world to share their gardens on the 15th of each month.

So, here is what is happening in my garden today.

Here's another view of the clump of columbine.

For years i tried to get rid of this columbine, a remnant from a previous owner, but couldn't.  Now I'm glad I let it be.  It greets me every day during its bloom season as my back door.

The hosta bed under the old magnolia tree. Love that combination of coral bells and hostas.

There are more coral bells on the “inside” curve of the boxwood hedge. The only thing blooming at the moment is the Heurcherella.

This little columbine, Blue Winky, lives in the Secret Garden.

Also in the Secret Garden is this Jack Frost brunnera.

I didn’t not expect a lot from the lilacs this year because I gave them a hard prune last summer. But these few blooms are kicking out a lot of sweet perfume.

The ammonia are about to bloom in the Secret Garden.

Alchemilia or Lady’s Mantle in the Secret Garden. No blooms yet, but the beads of water, like cabochon gems carry their own beauty.

The little nook outside the kitchen door provides a great place for this Bleeding Heart to thrive.

The Walker’s Low catmint is just about ready to bloom.

The variegated brunnera in the Secret Garden looks pretty amongst the rising hostas.

Another Bleeding Heart doing it’s wonderful thing in the Secret Garden.

I gave this bridle veil spirea a hard prune last summer and knew there would not be very many blooms this year. But a few is enough. And next year it will be back to its old self.

The euphorbia in this bed is so striking! This is my “lewd” hosta bed. I plan to put Striptease and Hanky Panky in there. That is Seducer that you see. I also plan to put in a Praying Hands, just for balance, donchaknow…

  1. Your ‘lewd’ garden made me chuckle. I love the themes. I’m on the hunt for hostas and some companions for a sci-fi garden. The Captain Kirk, Vulcan and Darth Vader type Hostas are on my list!
