Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - May 2009.
Magical May and here a cooler, wetter month so far than April. My May mosaic consists of :
Top row, left to right : weigela florida 'Variegata', ajuga reptans, polemonium 'Sonya's Bluebell (this does not set seed and is a lighter blue than polemonium caeruleum), emerging astrantia and unamed aquilegia.
Middle row left to right : Solomon's Seal, polemonium caeruleum,mathiasella bupleuroides 'Green Dream',clematis montana (don't know which one but it has an aroma of talculm powder especially in the evenings) and geum rivale.
Bottom row left to right : geranium phaeum 'Mourning Widow' ( this plant has undergone a name change and is now known as 'Lady in Mourning' - I can't get used to the new name),unamed aquilegia, geranium maculatum 'Expresso', aquilegia probably Hensol Harebell and geranium phaeum ' Lily Lovell'.
Finally an escapee from the mosaic but growing in abundance at the side of our lane at the moment the beautiful anthriscus sylvestris or cow parsley:
More May blossoms are taking root at Mays Dreams Gardens thanks to Carol.
