Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

Bloom Day for May


I completely forgot it was Bloom Day over at May Dreams Garden until I went to read HolleyGarden and there was her Bloom Day posting. So here's mine, though if you go on to older posts you will see that I've been celebrating Bloom Day all month.

My miniature garden in an old pail is doing nicely. I'm going to leave in the volunteer clover for now.


One of two varieties of allium is in bloom. Irises are a nice contrast.


Siberian irises are spread all over the garden from an initial clump from a friend.













I have three pots of this lovely geranium on my deck. The pots are self watering and I have yet to add water after two weeks.

The clematis below must have known it was Bloom Day because it's opening for the very first time this season.

Very pretty. I have a few little buds on some long stems - I think it's alliums. I love the look of yours - and your irises, of course. I remember the 15th because that's the same day I give my dog his flea and heartworm medicine! :) What a way to remember! haha Happy GBBD! I've missed a few of your posts, but am going back now to see the rest of your blooms.
