Garden Bloggers Bloom Day in May

We are grateful for more normal amount of rain this year, but to me it still seems low. The lace-cap hydrangea are blooming, but my blue hydrangea have not bloomed at all. I have seriously neglected my grandmother’s rose bushes, and they dropped all their leaves to blackspot. I am pleased that all six gardenias planted in the past two years remain alive, giving some blooms.



Happy Returns

Zephirine Drouhin antique climber has continued to bloom.

Ah, yes, the I-don’t-remember-hardy rose.

Early Girl tomato, yumm.
