Garden Bloggers Bloom Day– May 2013

How could it be the fifteenth of the month already? When I woke up this morning and saw another blogger’s Bloom Day post I had to quickly look at my calendar and check the date. It just didn’t seem possible. A lot has happened here in New England in the last month. The garden continues to soothe and heal all of us.

My long awaited dogwood is still in bloom. I know that I just have another day  or two with it so I’m enjoying every minute that I get.IMG_1318 Soloman’s seal is unfurling. This is “almost a bloom.”IMG_1302 Viola, lots of them, everywhere!IMG_1298 Lily of the valleyIMG_1289Crab apple

My little girl’s favorite, the bleeding heart. She’s been able to identify this since she was three. IMG_1279

And there’s still plenty of pollen! I’m so allergic to it, but I’m hoping that in just a few more days or after another good rain (this afternoon), it will be better.

Be sure to check out the other blogs on maydreamsgardens.com to see what’s blooming all over the world!
