Nature Notes

My gardens May 25

My gardens are alive and well. I do love this time of year.

Largest square: blue columbine (Aquilegia), a plant that spreads itself by seed in my gardens.

Moving clockwise:  Soloman's seal (Polygonatum) is an elegan plant that grows well in the shade; pasque flower (Pulsatilla) seed heads that grow well on a sunny bank; lilac (Syringia vulgaris) that's blooming profusely in a dry corner of our yard; bridal wreath spirea that also survives in a dry area; and 'Purple Sensation (Allium) an ornamental onion that flourishes, even amongst weeds. (Which reminds me, I sure do hope I find some time to pull a few weeds this week!)

It wasn't too long ago we were bemoaning the fact that it was cold and wet and we were never going to see Spring arrive---but now look at all the beautiful flowers and colors. Anticipation!! MB
