This is the first time I have participated in Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day hosted by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. I feel it is a wonderful way to document what is blooming in ones garden each month. One of my most stunning blooms is the peony located next to the fountain in my cottage garden. The ants absolutely love it. I counted 7 on the bud, below. Ants do not harm peonies in any way, so there is no need to do anything about them.
Primroses and forget-me-nots brighten the cottage garden:
I planted colorful perennials in a tub near the steps to the deck:
My grandmother called these sweet williams 'gilly flowers'.
I always think of her when I see their sweet faces:
The rhododendron is about to burst into bloom:
The red azaleas at the front of the house:
The yellow honeysuckle is flowering on the arbor.
My daughter gave me the unusual cone-shaped container,
filled with pink geraniums, for Mother's Day:
English bluebells greet you at the entrance to the Woodland Walk:
The bluebells are blooming along the banks of Bluebell Creek:
In the Kitchen Garden, the chives are displaying pretty pink flowers:
There are blossoms on the Wild Cherry trees:
The purple flowers of the ajuga are very striking, I think:
Finally, I found this blossom on a wild raspberry in the Woodland Walk:
