May Garden Journal

Hello everyone, 
Hope you had an enjoyable three day weekend. 
The days are warming up here in the Sacramento Valley, and
this May was a beautiful spring for the first blooms of the year.
We had a delightful Memorial Day dinner. My daughter and her family
came over for ribs, baked beans, and corn on the cob.  We also enjoyed 
Watermelon and baked s'mores. As you can see a white peony bloom above.
I grow peonies. I have one white peony plant
and one white bloom on the plant, but
I have several plants with the beautiful purple color.
Over the years of developing our cottage garden, I have tried to incorporate
perennials and roses closely related in color.

"Barbara Streisand"
I found I can grow sweet peas in a bush form. These are the most prolific plants. 
"Hot Cocoa"
Succulents are happy in our hot weather, and I have
started two new pots for the summer.
"Graham Thomas"
"St Patrick"
English bunting hanging in the pergola and star jasmine growing up the posts.
My succulent pots are along the walkway.  I have moved the 
succulent pots to the front flower bed for a few weeks.
"Garden Party"
Thank you for visiting.

  1. Oh what a lovely garden you have!!!!

  2. What a heaven you have created! What is the climbing red rose. The combination is stunning!

  3. Beautiful Betty, love your patio and flowers

  4. Hot cocoa! We have some of those too.

  5. Love your roses and of course the peonies as well. I lost several roses this past winter as wehad a lot of freeze thaw with little or no snow protection.....guess that means I will have to buy new ones!
    Thankyou for your visit and nice comment.
    Enjoy your beautiful garden.

  6. Thanks for your sharing, it helps me a lot and I think I'll watch your post more.
