We broke a high temperature record here on May 12…it reached 90 degrees. It was hot and it was humid. And, of course, that was the day I decided I should mow the lawn as showers were a possibility for the rest of the week. Oh well, it’s over and done with now.
I snapped the photo of the pear blossoms several days ago.
Heuchera, how I love heuchera! What amazing foliage. The heuchera in this bed, however, did better when they had some shade from the crabapple tree that is no longer with us. And the blue star juniper is kind of taking over that section of the bed…so I think maybe it’s time to move them to a more suitable location. I’d hate to lose them.
Even though the viburnum was just starting to bloom, you could smell that heavenly fragrance all over the yard. This picture was taken several days ago. It had a decidedly pinkish tint to it then. When in full bloom, it’s almost white which you can see in the last photo.
New wire vine has been placed in the planter by the back door. It gets early morning sun and is in shade for the rest of the day and it is perfectly happy with that arrangement. And I am perfectly happy with this lovely little vine.
Now this is one plant that is happy that the crabapple is gone. I hardly had any blooms on the narcissus when the tree was in this bed.
The Poncirus trifoliata a/k/a hardy orange has blooms among the thorns. The little spots of blue beneath are periwinkle blossoms.
Yellow lamium is creeping along the feet of the Chinese soldier statue in the courtyard.
The dogwood trees are in full bloom now. I love looking out the window in the very early morning and seeing all those white flowers dotting the landscape even before you can see much of anything else.
Spring…how I love this time of the year!
