Alstroemeria Regina is a wonderful bloomer, spreading all over the fountain bed.
Lavender trumpet vine, Clytostoma callistegioides took over the bloom job from the Lady Banks rose on the fence...they grow tangled together.
Passion flower, passiflora is such a wild bloom! Dad always liked them but I have only recently been converted. I used to think they looked fake..now I can't stop appreciating them.
Nigella damascena is delicate, fancy and scares me. I worry it has plans to take over. I, however, plan to limit the seed scattering to a reasonable amount.
A passalong poppy. I will be very careful with the seed...I have many fewer this year than I did last. None of the seeds grew except the ones in pots.
This bee is thoroughly enjoying the Campanula poscharskyana.
Other May blooms include salvias, roses, pelargoniums, lavenders, columbine, carnations, begonias, solanum jasminoides, abutilons, brunsfelsia, cranesbill, foxgloves, and scabiosa.
May is also the favorite month over at May Dreams Gardens where our loyal leader Carol invites everyone to share their blooms each month. Head over there to see what's blooming around the world!
