May Bloomers

Tuesday, 15 May 12 Overcast 21°C / 70°F

My is one of my favourite time of the year when many of the flowers bloom for the first time.
This year there is lots blooming today … mid height yellow iris, lily of the valley, violets, solomon seal, tulips, trillium both red and white, vinca, pansies, lilacs, and bleeding heart both pink and white.

    Lovely photos. Bleeding hearts are one of my favourite Spring flowers too. Love that iris, as well.
    FYI, I am planting out two of the cannas (from seed I received from you in the Canadian Seed Swap last Fall) – one is in a big pot on my kitchen deck and the other will be front and centre in the middle of my raised beds! Thanks.
