Purple is one of my favorite colors to see in my gardens. This purple and white columbine is a second year perennial for us. I was just thrilled this year at the beauty of the blooms.
In this same bed are ferns and more columbine. The columbine below is named "Little Red Lantern" and is very dainty and quite showy with it's red and yellow blooms. It has self-seeded in the bed so I have been very careful as I clean out the bed.
The pink dogwoods planted two years ago have rewarded us with beautiful blooms.
Purple blooms in our front beds are so stunning. These iris would catch anyone's eye.
I do enjoy the instant color that perennials bring to flower beds and pots.
A large flower pot filled with orange zinnias and other orange, red, and yellow perennials sits on a large piece of tree trunk that was too heavy for my husband to move by himself.
Plants on our front porch include tuberous begonias, ferns, and petunias.
Our roses are blooming with their brilliant red flowers.
Our hostas have been putting on a show.
Some are now starting to bloom.
Thanks for stopping by for a look at our gardens with their May blooms - Judy.
