Right Now - May 2015

Bloomin' Friday

Things are really beginning to POP in my garden.  


Here's what's blooming today. . . 

The clematis is exploding everywhere!


(I know someone is going to ask me which clematis this is. . . and, well, I just don't know.  I mean, I have it listed somewhere in one of my garden journals.  But I can't find it quickly.  Besides, I have 8 different types of clematis in my garden -- 4 on that pergola alone.  Please forgive me for not being able to remember which type is which.)

I'm thrilled that my Satomi dogwood is blooming.  


(It's a new tree last season.  It was expensive.  It's a bit fussy.  And the winter was hard.)

My happy little heucheras are dancing in the breeze.


(These are an early-blooming variety called Paris.)  (It's easy for me to remember that one!)

My herb garden is kind of overrun with chives! 


(I don't need that many chives, but I'll wait until after the flower show before I cut them back and dig some out.)

The false indigo is particularly lovely this year!


(It's taken me a long time to find the "just right spot" for this guy.  Tom has moved him for me many, many times.  I think I've finally got it right, now.)

Enjoy your weekend!  I'm heading up north for a few days, so you may not hear from me until the middle of next week.  (But then again . . . you never know.)

Your gardens are beautiful and really show how hard you work at caring for them. Enjoy your time up north!


I would just want to sit in that swing all day and admire all the clematis and the rest of your garden. I would even help weed (after I finish my iced tea)!


Your garden is breathtaking. We're barely getting started here. Enjoy the north county weekend!

Pretty! I've never had much luck with Clematis. I had one that did pretty well for years, and then one year it just croaked.


Beautiful! Have a wonderful weekend - I'll meet you vicariously around 6!Clink!


Your garden looks lovely and well-loved. Now that we are spending more time at our lake place, with room to garden, I'm beginning to do more and have really been having fun exploring new plant varieties. I recently planted a few different varieties of heucheras.


Your pergola is wonderful! Your spring may be a little behind ours but it's catching up fast!


So that's what clematis looks like, I said to myself as I looked at your first garden close-up. And THEN you had to mention that you had 8 different kinds. I'm never going to catch up.


what a tease! wishing you a wonderful weekend away...and wishing all of us another garden update next week!


Thanks for sharing the beauty.


(And for not sharing the overgrown, dead, ugly parts!)
(Because there are those!)
Have a great weekend!

Oh, another lovely-to-look-at post! So many familiar favorites -- clematis, coral bells and, haha, chives! Hope you had a great few days up north.
