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.

The epimediums are stunning this year. I may have to do a separate post if the sun comes out!!!
Hostas without a single hole. How do you do it?
I don’t know.. lucky I guess. The varmints seem to love everything else though.
Oh my! Beautiful garden and blooms and you live not so far from me. I’ll bet you visit Tower Hill on a regular basis. Happy Bloom Day.
I love Tower Hill.. i don’t go as often as I would like.. Its about a 45 minute drive but I get so busy in my own yard! (I am in Groton, where are you?)
Happy garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day!

It’s really great that you have some of your mom’s flowers for your garden. Your flowers and potential flowers are so awesome to see as I’m on the other side of the world in the midst of autumn!
