Otherwise known as, why spring is my favorite time of year, hands down.
First, my front flower bed.
This is at the very front end of my flower bed. I love the tapestry this has become.
This is about halfway down the bed to my front door. The ferny foliage in the upper lefthand corner is threadleaf coreopsis, and the tall spiky plants in the upper center are lilies.
And, no, I don’t have his name. But isn’t he gorgeous?
This is the backyard.
Another cool combination.
This was a tiny seedling about six years ago. Those flowers are bigger than my hand.
This was the clematis I thought I’d dug up a couple of years ago. Apparently I missed some root fragments. I figure if it survived that, it deserves to stay.
I love columbines.
And that is May in my garden this year. Well, except for the bleeding heart that ate New York, but something fell on it and crunched part of it, so it’s not looking so great right now, alas. It is still blooming, however.
