May has seen more than her share of stormy weather. My flower gardens were often a muddy mess, but most of the flowers fared well from the inclement weather.
|An Eastern Black Swallowtail checks out the Lantana|
|Can you see the tiny Skipper on this bloom? |
(Wish I could remember the name of this plant- my amnesia is kicking in)
|Lovely Red Pentas|
|A busy Bumble Bee buzzed from flower to flower|
|He is particularly fond of the Foxgloves (I am too!)|
|My Asiatic Lily is now blooming and the size of it has quadrupled since last year! |
Time to transplant this one.
|My first Hibiscus plant. The huge, gorgeous blooms convinced me to bring it home.|
|I planted a few Double Tiger Lily bulbs back in February. |
They're now gorgeous! Wish their blooms would last longer!
|I love this shade of pink. Pink Verbena.|
|The first of the Liatris Spicata plants has bloomed. |
Several stalks are coming up and will soon bloom as well.
|Several of these tiny insects (some sort of small bee?) are creeping about on the Gaillardia blooms|
|The young and the old, side by side|
