May in Bloom


By neellan


Some shrubs and flowers in my garden this month -

The first Rhododendron to appear, a very pale pink this year.

Azalea Mollis with a most delicious perfume peering through the leaves of Viburnum Bodnantense Dawn

Berberis Thunbergii with tiny orange flowers contrasting with the purple foliage

Down the garden path!

From the other direction!

Lily of the Valley amid the Forget Me Nots

A Welsh Poppy – they pop up all over the place!

Hardy Osteopermum, Euphorbia Purpurea, more Forget Me Nots and a stray daisy on the edge of the drive!

My blooming garden! – hope you enjoyed this little look around.
