End of Month View – May Well, I’m a couple of days late to the party but the photos were actually shot on May 29th and 30th, so close enough. I’ve yet to weed and edge this border, but this is the Circle Garden with the peony/rose border on the top and right and the Spring Border in the top left, edging the duck area. In another week or so, the Circle Garden will be in full bloom. Bearded Iris ‘Autumn Circus’ with Allium ‘Purple Sensation’ Bearded Iris Germanica ‘Innocent Star’ – a new addition last year Verbascum, allium and a lupine on the verge Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’ (Snowball Viburnum) and Hesperis matronalis (Sweet Rocket) These are suppose to be red ‘Goliath’ poppies, but they are distinctly orange A batch of Bearded Iris ‘Hemstitched’ The first bloom on the clematis ‘Miss Bateman’ Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...
