End of May Blooms and Garden Friend

 

May 28 mosaic 

Hope you have had a great weekend.   Yesterday was my Horticulture Society’s annual Spring Plant and Bake sale.   We had lots of shoppers through the doors and had very little left by closing.   Today it was back to the weeding and planting in the Sandbox.    My mosaic today is showing the dainty little flowers on the Akebia Vine, an Iris bloom that had fallen off a plant for the plant sale and I stuck it in water, a new addition for the Sandbox garden of a Japanese peony “High Noon”, the purple Aquilegia or Columbine, one of the giant Alliums that a now in bloom in the garden and one of our vocal frogs down by the pond.   

I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.   Have a great week.   I have my fingers and toes crossed that Blogger will let me make comments again.   I have not been able to leave any comments for many days this week.    Valerie

Your new Peony is such a beautiful thing! Love the flowers on the Akebia Vine too ... so dainty! It sounds like the Spring Plant and Bake Sale was a roaring success, so well done to you all!

Been having issues, too, with blogger. Hopefully they'll get everything in order.

Your mosaic is stunning, I love the flowers, so pretty and such gorgeous colors!

Hi Val
Nice photos from your garden and I like your froggie friend. We still have 8 in the pond and I caught 2 hugging today on a rock. Did I have my camera with me? Too busy weeding and trying to plant my containers.

Ah yes, the weeding never seems to end. But I don't really mind the task - it gets me outside in the sunshine on beautiful days, and the results are so satisfying.


That giant allium is just gorgeous!

I love to listen to the sound of the frogs in the pond as I drift off to sleep in the spring.

I have a question, alliums are perennials like tulips right. But mine are not, why?! I think I suppose to have about 50 alliums if they all would bloom what I have put in to the soil during the years. I don't get it...I have to put every autumn new alliums if I want to have them next spring.
