GBBD – May

Here we are again, middle of the month, Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, thanks to Carol of May Dreams Gardens. And less than a month until the wedding! Things are going well. I am cutting back the wildflowers that are finishing up – gilias, tidytips, poppies and non-native (and invasive) nasturtiums that come up each year with no help from me. Still they are so pretty I don’t have the heart to remove them all and of course they reseed like crazy. So here are some pretty closeups. Didn’t have time to give a more complete photographic tour of the garden but will try to next week.

Farewell-to-spring (Clarkia amoena)

Bountiful seaside daisy (Erigeron glaucus ‘Bountiful’)

Margarita BOP penstemon (Penstemon heterophylla ‘Margarita BOP’)

Juncus patens

Shadow of Roger’s Red grape

Buds on potted minature sunflowers – will they be in bloom on June 12????

Got to run – we’re going out to Canele’s for dinner. YUM!

Are things easing up now that the garden tour is over?<br /><br />Ficurinia, I use a Nikon D70s that I got in 2005. More importantly – I was using a Nikon 105mm lens that is really amazing. By the way – I noticed that your blog has a nasturtium picture very similar to the one I posted. They are pretty, aren&#
