MAY 15th 2009 Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

Allium, maybe purple sensation. It was given to us by a neighbor. The spirea just behind will be a vision of cascading white after this rain stops.
Flowering red osier dogwood. One of my favorite shrubs which berry later in mid-summer.
Aronia arbutifolia, will also produce berries in late summer/fall.

Ajuga blooming in the thyme.

Phlox subulata over the hobbit door.

a species heuchera flowers not open just yet.

Columbine/aquilegia. The dark purple ones and the pink ones are blooming all over the garden. But the red ones tend to stay put and are not nearly as big as in years past. I think I need to get a couple more that have not cross pollinated with others in this garden.

Wow, it's easy to see how spectacular that spirea will be. Lovely!

Hi Elizabeth, that spirea is big.
When we fist moved here we cut the whole thing to the ground. It had been a mess growing so that the center was all dead.
Carted away a truckload of bundled branches.
The very next year it was blooming again and by the second year it had grown back to about six/seven ft tall.
It is a monster but so beautiful in bloom.
