Two new blooms and a color echo ...

I moved Heliathemum 'cheriot'  to a nice open hot spot under the Salix  exigua . A happy accidental color echo ….yellow and kind of Salmony blooms on both.

Garden Blogger's Bloom Day... May

I should call this May Bloom post …For-get-me-not and friends . They seem to be in most photos as are the Aquilegia .

I started out with just one , This could be it 'Winky Blue and White ' 

This is one of my favorite that have self seeded this year . 

I think I must have brought  this Aquilegia  one from my mother's garden , here with a plump red  Paeony

Last year I dug out most of the pale ones, and kept the dark blue and purple .

A little native.

 Two natives : Delphinium trollifolium and Red Columbine



Centaurea montana came with the house.

Weigela is full of blooms this year !

P.'Turkish delight ' is just beginning to get going.
Lunaria annua 'Rosemary Verey' 

Eythronium 'Kondo and Epimedium lishihchenii

Lamium orvala  and Beesia deltophylla


Astrantia major and Euphorbia blackbird 

Euphorbia polychroma


A big whopping clump of Euphorbia oblongata , one of many clumps.

Astrantia major 'abbey road'


A think this is one of the Pacific coast Iris I got from Alison at last years plant swap.


Persicaria bistorta with  Geranium phaeum 'Samobor'

The Ghost Ferm makes a nice backdrop for this new Aquilegia …from Alison at this years  plant swap.

Another one from Alison !

Geranium phaeum 'darkest of all'



Armeria 'rubrifolia'


These must be my most exciting blooms ! Sinocalycanthus 'Hartiage wine'
