Whatever else has been going on in the world, plants have continued to grow. As April and May were unusually dry hubby used rainwater from our butts to prevent them drying out completely. Here are a few of our garden plants, which flowered in May. Elephant’s ear is Bergenia. There are a few varieties. One flowered in March and was over before May.
The clematis looks and smells wonderful. It is still flowering in June.
The hebe and honeysuckle were the first flowers on those plants in our garden. The aquilegia or columbine made its way into a poem in a challenge on Sue’s Trifles. Please scroll down on the linked page to find the photo and poem.
