Between rose flushes this Ides of May. Just a scattered few at this moment--such as 'Beloved', above.
Cistanthe grandiflora crazy gaudy against a background of Abelia 'Kaleidescope'. The bees don't mind.
Leucospermum 'Yellow Bird', just beginning for March Bloom Day, still looks quite striking two months later. There is a single 'High Gold' flower on the new plant, which can just be seen at the extreme right of the photo. Next year the show may be even better.
This is an 'Yellow Granex' onion flower! The onions are ready for harvest.
Leucadendron linifolium has a new set of silvery cones.
The Bougainvillea spectabilis is simply covered; leaves can barely be seen. I had hoped that the Opuntia microdasys below the Bougie might bloom for the first time this year since it has grown so much, but...not yet. This is a selection with wavy leaves.
Salvia 'Waverly', making the hummers happy.
Sideritis cypria has a delightfully whimsical bloom. I hope I get seedlings.
White Shasta Daisies look sweet and fresh with Geranium 'Rozanne'. The red foliage is Coprosma 'Pacific Sunset'
The sweet peas finally bloomed. Fragrance heaven!
To end this post, the "insignificant" flowers of Ballota. Tiny and hard to see, but beautiful nonetheless. Close up, the plant's fuzzy stems look like pipe cleaners.
I hope your Bloom Day is beautiful! See more at May Dreams.
While he dreams about nectar.
