end of may…and the garden is changing again

The garden continues to surprise us with the earlier than usual bloom times. The daylilies are beginning to bloom, with more open each day. They are running two to three weeks earlier than the earliest dates we’ve recorded in the past. Here are a few pretty ones.

In the front yard, the few Asiatic lilies we have are in full bloom. I don’t know their names, but they are beautiful.




I wish you could see the hydrangeas in person. Pictures don’t do them justice. So pretty this year!

DH has had to move five or six hostas this spring. That’s the way of a garden, though. Always shifting, always changing. Never static.

If you’re in the area, stop by Saturday for the plant sale. All the proceeds go to our church’s mission fund. We hope to see you there.

    Rhonda, Every time I see your amzing daylilies I want more! Gorgeous! Love your multicolor hydrangea! I’m afraid only a couple of mine will bloom this season. Everything awoke too early and we had a heavy frost and snow. Not too many lilacs either.

    Hi Rhonda, I finally made it over here to check your Bloomin’ Tuesday post. I have to say that your hydrangeas are absolutely stunning… love the pinks! I’m partial to hydrangeas because we had one growing by the back door in my childhood home, and they bring back lots of memories. Also, I’m thinking about transplanting several hostas, so it was good to see your husband doing it. I think I’ll wait until September so the bed will have plenty of time to get prepared and also so it’s not too hot for them.

    Deb, thanks for leaving a comment. The hydrangeas are about as pretty this year as they have ever been. Transplanting hostas is easy, and can be done at any time, given enough water. But spring and fall are the best times. Just be sure they will have at least six weeks before frost when you move them, so they will have time to dig in their roots before winter. ~~Rhonda 🙂
