  1. I love May in the garden... lilacs and snowball bushes, irises and even some tulips. All some of the showiest flowers of the year, aren't they?

    Thanks for joining in for bloom day again. I know this is your busy time of the year!

  2. Hi Carolyn - your garden looks so pretty already. I just love the old fashion lilacs and since I've finally learned what they are I've realize my alley is lined with them. About 50% of people around here seem to have one.

  3. So many lovely blooms! I live downstate, so many of the blooms you show--the lilacs and tulips--are done here. I'm in a state of anticipation, as Carol says.

  4. My garden is past where you're at but not into the full swing of perennials. It's an inbetween time that I need to solve.

  6. Hi Carolyn -
    I really like your blog so I "tagged" you for one of those "13 things about you" games on my blog. :)

  8. Gorgeous. May is usually the best month for blooms, isn't it? Well, not my May this year anyway.

  9. Totally classic spring blooms, Carolyn - love the dwarf yellow iris and the darker old-fashioned lilac... enjoy the fragrance and happy blooming day!

  13. Thanks, Ki. Autumn Moon is a real show stopper. Betty did very well this year. As you know they don't like hot weather. Today I saw a hummingbird feeding on the few blooms it has left.
