Late May garden round-up

Our first May with a garden is drawing to a close, so it’s a good time to reflect on what’s been blooming, and where. Noticing gaps in the flowerbeds and patterns of colour will be helpful for next springtime. For example, aside from wallflowers and bulbs, the garden has predominantly been dotted with pink, red and white flowers so far this year; and one bed has had practically no flowers at all, so I’ll know to put some geums and other smaller plants there for next year.

It’s farewell to the flowers of the bergenia for a while.
They are short-lived but brilliant.
I waited like a kid at Christmas for this to bloom, and here it is.
I believe it’s called Anthemis tinctoria E.C. Buxton.
I love this Viburnum opulus ‘Roseum’…it has a magical feeling to it.
Cerinthe major ‘Purpurascens’ is the most wonderful plant –
its blue-grey leaves are just as beautiful as its purple bells.
I’ve no idea which poppy this is, but look forward to finding out soon…!
As mentioned in a previous post, this Aquilegia ‘Winky Double Red-White’ is going strong.
It has been the star of the show this spring (even in a pot).

And that’s the round-up! I hope you’re enjoying this time of year, too.

Until next time,

🌞 Katherine

  1. You have a very nice selection of plants. I had trouble with the cerinthe self-seeding and taking over the garden, so keep an eye on it! A garden journal of any sort will make improving the garden a much easier task. Of course, I love journaling as much as gardening! Happy growing.
