May - what a wonderful garden month! It' s hard to select photographs for this post, because there are so many lovely plants to choose from!!! Please come with me while we walk over to the left-hand side of the terrace and visit the Peony.
A group Erysimum with a fantastic color mix blooming for the third year in my garden has given the left-hand corner a good color.
The Tellima grandiflora is a special soil shrub in the sun. The little lovely blossoms can easily bee sen using a macro lens.
The Hemerocallis path is blossoming with Brunnera in blue and white and filled late Tulips; here you see the Tulipa Viridiflora "Esperanto".
In the "Apple corner" the Leucojum aestivum "Gravetye Giant" are dancing in the wind. This Leucojum usually blooms in May and can reach a height of 90 cm near water; on every stalk there are several blossoms.
My little apple tree is only blossoms for a short time but it lovely.
In the rock garden the Sempervivum is beginning to bloom. I' m not always happy about this, because if there aren' t little plants, I lose it.
The spring color of the Sempervivum is now at its best.
The Delospermum nubigerum is a "yellow blossom dream" in the sunshine.
The door to paradise is full of late tulips in white, pink and wine red.
The Tulip Cummings is a good partner for the white and pink tulips.
Next to the tulips the Aquilegias and Persicarias are blooming.
In the hosta border, the Geranium phaeum is now blooming. The plant with the little black-red blossoms conquered the gardens of the castle ladies in the Middle Ages. This native plant has been growing since today in places, where a castle stand is.
This tulip has been blooming for a very long time and it always produces several stalks.
I love the leaves of the Epimedium - it is attractive with or without blossoms.
Erythronium Pagoda blooms later than the others of this family.
Hyacinthoides hispanica "Excelsior" is so nice combined with the fresh green of the japanese maple-tree.
An Allium is blooming between theHosta rosettes.
Here a view over the hill into the azalea valley.
The pond has also woken up now. The Lychnis flos-cucúli came without my helping hand.
This marsh plant, Mazus reptans from Asia will bloom throughout the whole Summer.
The leaves of the Oenanthe fistulosa "Flamingo" are so nice!
The blue blossoms of Anemone nemerosa "Robinsoniana" are a little bigger.
This is the Anemone nemorosa "Flore Plena" in its usual blossom.
Isn' t it wonderful to see the first high rhizome iris blooming in my garden?
The maple-tree corner is the last place on our May walk. Here, the pink of the Persicaria bistorta has beautified the dark red leaves of the maple-tree.
The Ornithogalum umbellatum is in many places in the garden.
This late tulips are my favourites.... but now we are at the end. In the next post I will tell you some more news and show you more from my garden.
