May Garden

Come check out a bit of our garden!

It's totally blooming & not yet dried from the coming hot days. My descriptions are typed below the photos (is there a general rule on that?).

Be still my heart...love these two together...it took a couple years for the passionflower vines to meander over to the cecile brunner roses.

Grow corn - it's fun! That's what everyone keeps telling me so I went ahead and am doing so this year. When does the fun start? Sorry, snarky tired comment, ha ;o) I'm assuming its in the speed at which corn grows and the reward of perfect sweet ears of corn to steam or grill then eat with butter & salt - yum!

I may be in the minority but I'm loving this crazy mash of color and form!

New Zealand wind grass - wild and lovely!

Left side of the front garden - we bucked neighborhood tradition and have no (mowable) grass. I assume we save on water as well as time. Though I'd love a little patch in the backyard. Maybe someday.

Hot Lips salvia - dontcha love a name like that?

Drowning in irises...it's a sickness. I love all my pretties.

Sweet delicious flax - the backbone of the garden.

Right side of the front garden. Yes, we live next to a pink and turquoise house. Jealous right?

Bird's touch - pinwheel in the forsythia and daahlias.

Hope that was fun eye candy for any plant and flower lovers :o) Hoping to get more gardening on this weekend too.

Hugs and Happy Mother's Day to all you mamas out there!
