A May bloom day from Far Reaches Farm….
|I thought I'd do my bloom day post from Far Reaches Farm in Port Townsend this month , as we've stopped on the way home today . Philip and doggies patiently waited while I had a little look round.|
|I really wished I'd taken this lovely Astrantia 'Dark shiny eye's' but I was after things for dry sunny positioning|
|Most of the Iris's were over , but this Iris 'big money' was still looking fresh.|
|This was not ready to bloom yet, Nomocharis pardanthina a lily relative , must remember to look for this bulb.|
|Chiastophyllum oppositifolium , so not blooming quite yet , but a very nice shade moisture lovely succulent that I would have loved to bring home, but didn't.|
|Finally a bloomer, Soldanella alpina . A sweet primula like native to the Alps and Pyrenees.|
|This one I did take with me, Myrteola nummularifolia , because I can't resist teensy white flowers.|
|Cirsium rivulare 'Atropurpureum'|
|The star bloomer … Meconopsis'Lingholm'|
|And a simple species peony .|
Happy bloom day and for more lovely blooms visit May Dreams Gardens.

The self seeding Aquilegia...
|For years I have been pulling out these pale Mauve Aquilgea selfseeders . They never plant themselves in the right spots.|
|But this year I've left them , They seem to have got the message ; and made a neat little colony surrounding the Honesty and Forester grass , which is looking so fresh this time of year.|
|With a few tall spikes of Verbascum , this won't last long.|
|This one has nestled next to the Syneilesis , which I like …|
|And here decorating the gate. `Yes, I'm enjoying these pale little Aquilegia this year.|

For the best...
|The Daubs' can stretch out more comfortably now ; and I will look out for a new companion.|
|Sieberi in her new home, which badly needed more occupants .|

May in the garden.
|Here we are at the end of March , Mickey enjoying all the open space.|
|Here in March , no Brass buttons, so I threw the steps back in . Than dug up the Black mondo grass clumps and planted them along the path.|
|This was last spring , a carpet of Brass buttons …oh well.|
