May in My Garden

May border



May is when my garden really starts gowing and blooming and this year thanks to all the Forget me nots I have a full border.  I seem to have a garden full of mauve, yellow and purple flowers.  Not a white or red bloom to be seen.  The Wallflower ‘Bowles Mauve’, Aquileja and Geranium ‘Bill Wallis ‘are all favourites of mine.  They usually comeback every year.


Hosta - Sum and Substance

I am so so proud of my Hosta – Sum and Substance this year – not a slug nibble in sight.  Growing it in a pot really does help.

Epimedium flower

The flowers on my Epimediums are just about finishing.  They are so beautiful and delicate.

Clematis Montana

Rosemary in front garden

In the front garden the clematis montana and the rosemary are going great guns.  The Rosemary has been flowering since December.  It badly needs a haircut, but I haven’t the heart to to cut those blooms off.

No roses to show off as these are really behind this year.

    Such a pretty garden! I too haven’t been able to face pruning back the rosemary because of all the lovely flowers, in fact I’ve cut a sprig off which is sitting in a glass bottle on my hallway window sill just because I think it looks so lovely.

    Such variety and colour in your garden – lovely to look at – thanks for sharing x

    Quite a lovely garden, enjoy it :) Thanks for sharing. I just bought a hosta very similar to that one last week, yours is much bigger though, I hope mine gets to grow as big. I also have it in a container.

      My Hosta was only a tiny little scrap when first bought. So hope fully yours will thrive. Thanks for stopping by.
