Its the last day of May, and I have been so busy gardening I haven’t had time for posting. The wet cool spring has produced lovely blooms and they have lingered a bit longer than usual. June is about to bust out, and it looks like from the all the buds on the iris that its going to be a good year for them.
Epimedium “Domino” and some primroses
Dianthus in the rock garden
Refurbished front beds

Baptisia and rhododendron
The hosta slope, primroses, and “snow in summer”
Old fashioned bearded iris
Peony “Early Scout” and Geum “Prairie Smoke”
And lastly – a spectacular tree peony gifted to me by garden club friend Olga
Happy Mother’s Day. I lost my Mom almost six years ago. She was a great gardener, and I still have some of her plants in my garden. That’s the thing about gardens, they can keep those that have passed always with you.
April and May have been exceptionally wet here in Massachusetts. We have Ireland level green though, and all those showers certainly brought May flowers.
One of our few sunny days… the back yard looking to the left…

The epimediums are stunning this year. I may have to do a separate post if the sun comes out!!!
