|Zantedeschia - Arum Lily|
A Cardiff Garden In May is an exciting time. Everything has suddenly become green and the flowers are all coming into bud. We have Clematis and Wisteria and Roses to name but a few. I think Summer is finally on it's way. We have had a major loss though. We have two bay trees in pots that we grew from very small plants and they are now 25+ years old. One has died. We can only think that it drowned during the Spring. It's so sad because it was beautiful and moved from our old house with us. I have protected it from frost, gone out in snow storms to stop it getting too top heavy and snapping. Never mind we still have one in the porch.
So here are a few pictures of what is in my garden this month.
|Aquilegia - A few aphids are already out and about|
|Campanula - Canterbury Bells|
|Clemetis - The President|
|Euonymus - Silver Queen|
|Geranium - Ann Folkard|
|Lily of The Valley|
|Rose - Mrs Merrill. The scent of this rose is stunning.|
|Wisteria - This is from a cutting of the rootstock|
|Wisteria Alba - I just wish you could smell the fragrence. It fills the garden.|
|Cerastium - Snow in Summer|
|My poor Bay tree|
A lot of my plants are cuttings or gifts from friends gardens and so I do not know their full names. I hope your garden is looking beautiful and that the summer is going to be good.
