Poppies have been mostly a no-show the last few years. I typically scatter seed in fall , and with little or no winter rain the seeds either never came up or came up too late. This year they are everywhere, but all one variety.
Papaver somniferum Laurens Grape
Worlds cutest grass, Biza media.
Briza media with the cast iron pure yellow Gaillardia
Most of the roses have completed the first bloom flush of the season, here are a couple of the stragglers.
Lady Emma Hamilton
Phlomis with Verbena bonariensis
The first Sanguisorba flower of the year is S. 'Chocolate Tips'
The excellent Clematis 'Rooguchi' ..
Eryngium 'jos eijking' is stopping the show in my front garden this year.
This is Agastache 'Grapefruit Nectar' just starting to bloom in the hell strip.
As always, thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting this global event on the 15th of each month. Be sure to stop by for your monthly bloom tonic !
