Flowers and spring - GBBD and BF - May'2009

As the new annual in my garden Lobelia erinus got honored place in first pictures of this May Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.

They are planted few days ago - Lobelia sharing the pot with pelargonium and plectranthus.


Ajuga reptans and white Iberis sempervirens.

I wanted to show this very persistent Ajuga reptans - see, there is almost no soil.




Wax begonia also planted few days ago.


Centaurea Montana called Perennial Cornflower, Mountain Cornflower, Montane Knapweed or Mountain Bluet.


Clematis Omoshiro bought in the fall prepares surprise for me - as you can see looks interesting. there will be 4 flowers coming soon.


Euphorbia polychroma - dependable.


Flox subulata (Moss Phlox, Moss Pink, Mountain Phlox) ends blooming.


Forget-me-not in pink and blue.


Fragaria hybride Dee Rose - evergreen and blooming sometimes even in December.


Geranium phaeum Spring Time.


Hyacithoides hispanica (Spanish bluebell or Wood hyacinth) in pink and blue.


... then come latest tulips of the garden ....




... Magnolia lilliflora Nigra ...


Paeonia suffruticosa - first flower ever is about to be open.....


As you can see, in May even Rucola decided to bloom. I sew it in Novemebr and it overwintered well without any protection.


... very dark private parts of light in color fragrant Surfinia.....

... and surfinia herself ...

And pansies moved today from too shady place to sunny warm spot - I think they will like it.

Happy Bloom Day!

Katarina said...

You've got so many interesting plants in your garden, Ewa. That clematis makes me so curious - I want to see what that furry bud will turn into...
I wish you a great weekend among all your beautiful, blooming plants!

Rose said...

Beautiful blooms, Ewa! I love the dainty little pink and blue forget-me-nots, but the real showstopper is that electric blue lobelia. I've never had much luck keeping it over the summer, but I couldn't resist picking some up at the garden center once again. Maybe this will be the year it will grow for me:)

Lori Skoog said...

What a fabulous series of photos...not to mention the flowers.

Frances said...

Hi Ewa, the lobelia deserves that place of honor, what an intense blue! The whole combination in the container is fabulous! Azaleas always steal my heart too, that one is new to me. The peony looks promising, pink?

garden girl said...

Happy Bloom Day Ewa! Your garden always inspires me. I love the centaurea montana - had them in previous gardens and just added a few teeny tiny babies last fall. I hope they manage to bloom this year. They've been chewed down to nothing by the rabbits once or twice, but they're tough and keep coming back.

That lobelia is gorgeous. I just love the blues! Everything else blooming in your garden is also just beautiful.

Naturegirl said...

Ewa truly a glorious variety of color and blooms in your May garden!
Love your colors..I fill my garden with blue pink and white!So many favorites in your post today but it's those pink and blue forget me nots that stole my heart! Happy Bloom Day!

Happy Bloom Day, Ewa! Lots of loveliness here, as usual! You're going to love your tree peony when it blooms! You'll have to post a picture of it when it does. :-)
