We’ve had a chilly, rainy May so far in southern Connecticut, but regardless of the weather, May always delights the senses. Here’s what’s blooming around my piece of Earth.
Lilacs – both a compact white variety and the common lilac-colored Syringa vulgaris. For hints on bringing lilac blooms inside see a previous post.
Parital shade lovers – Sweet Woodruff above and Lily-of-the-Valley to the left.
Eastern Red Columbine, one of my amateur phenologist choices for Project Plants.
and a compact pink variety.
Wood hyacinth just starting to open.
Chives – newly opening. Watch for my future post on how to use chive blossoms.
I’m closely watching for iris, peony, and clematis blossoms, and waiting for columbine – shared from my sister’s northern California plants – to brighten some shadier spots.
