There are very few blog entries for May in the archives. There is so much to do it makes my head spin, but the garden is positively enchanting at this time of year! Here’s a look at what is happening right now:
Azaleas and Rhododendrons blooming together.
‘Ruth May’ Azalea –interesting color…
‘Geisha’ Azalea, one of my favorites, just because.
The flowers of the Dove Tree / Davidia involucrata.
Bright red new growth on Pieris japonica ‘Mountain Fire’.
Woody flowers of Carolina Allspice / Calycanthus floridus.
Cold-hardy banana (Musa basjoo) survived the winter!
Also looking good after a very tough winter: Opuntia humifusa, the Eastern Prickly Pear, native to RI.
Shade garden…Solomon’s Seal and more coming up through a carpet of Sweet Woodruff / Galium odoratum.
