Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day May 2008

A pretty pink tree peony is in full flower. (left)

The false Solomon's seal is full of hanging bells (below, center) and the spirea is in full flower. (below, left.)




A group of tiny white flowers comes up every year below the pin oak (left). Does anyone know what this is?


The red-leaf hardy geranium is blooming a little early this year (left)







Poeticus daffodils are always the last ones to bloom in my garden.


The nepeta is loaded with great blue flowers (left).







The fringe tree is limping along. The deer or some other critter munched on it this winter.







The deciduous azalea is a gorgeous peachy yellow!







The clematis has its first open flower today, just in time for GBBD.









The giant alliums are just beginning to bloom.





Buttercups are pretty, but very invasive. Think twice before you add these to a perennial bed or border! (below)

Lynn, Just found your blog when you posted the age comment on DB! You are in my "age group'! haha
I am also in Ohio, up by Cleveland. The flowers look so lovely, what area is your retail op in? My sister and brother-in-law have a greenhouse in Olmsted Falls, OH.

Fran,

We are located in southeast Ohio, just south of Steubenville, about twenty minutes from the West Virginia border.
