I need an excuse to upload some pictures :) Plus I want to see yours - what's going on in your gardens this month? Clematis 'Starburst' is blooming away and sharing trellis space with climbing rose 'Polka'. This is the Polka's third year and I'm excited to see it finally (hopefully) put on a show this season.

This shady border leaps from nothing to lush seemingly overnight in the cool, moist spring weather we've been having. Aruncus, lady fern, forget-me-nots, ajuga, and some almost hidden yellow heuchera are all going on here.

Great photos, thanks for sharing! For me, it's creeping phlox, lithodora, wisteria, alliums, clematis, lavendar, wallflowers, aubrieta, iris, thyme, viburnums, and delphiniums that are making my yard look great right now. I'll show a few pics, taken today.

"Neat plant."

you can have my share. I don't think any plant that smells like that would be welcome in my garden... unless it is at a boundary and its scent is successful in repelling pests of some kind.

Yay, so glad there's some action on this thread - love the pics, love the skink! It sounds like we're a bit ahead on the poppy front here in Seattle, the Orientals have been in full glory for several weeks now. This is Royal Wedding with catmint, california poppies, and artemesia 'Valerie Finnis'. Love the pink ones up above - especially the fringed one.

By that definition, I am definitely run by plants, and not only that, by pictures of plants, talking about plants, reading about plants, dreaming about plants...

Azorina, you definitely have a knack for choosing unusual plants for your collection. And your veggie garden looks delicious too.

Kosk and Willow, Kymco and Springcolor, you all have so much in bloom and leaf already. Wow! I need to get out in the garden more to see what I have out there. I seem to be trudging between home and work without much time in the garden lately. I did palnt some irises in pots on the porch so they would be where I could enjoy them. Here are some dwarf beardeds.

I've bought from Naylor Creek quite a few times (usually Hostas or Epimediums) at plant shows, but their prices weren't significantly different from the other vendors. Maybe it's different when they are closer to home. I do love the stuff they have. Going to their site is dangerous . . .

This little clump was only about 5 or 6 strong when I planted it last September and it just sat there and I was wondering if it would survive. Seems to be doing just fine!! It is spreading by underground runners and I'm not sure if it will reseed as well! To be honest, the real reason it is spreading to other parts of this garden and other people's gardens as well, is the fault of the plant nut plunking this out on a keyboard. It lights up a normally dark part of the garden, although this one is getting at least 2 hours of midday sun. At this point I am really liking this plant.

I love it. It does spread underground and is a little tougher than it looks. You can divide and share and it grows pretty darned well here with enough water. Yours might have come from Sue Wall. That's where I got mine. I first saw it at Dunn Gardens a few years ago and didn't think much of it, but now it's a favorite.

Your stand looks great. I have an acquaintance who has a large stand with Coltsfoot and Hosta behind it.

Big old plant. When I first started to garden didn't save tags.

Hi mhf, No not all moved or settled in yet. This is a slow process because DH doesn't adjust well to strange things. Will get pictures soon. Haven't forgotten your siberian iris either. Will mail it soon. Send me your address on dmail please.

I just love this Bougainvillea. It is probably 4 years at my house and loves to go out in the sun in June and get planted. Then I dig it up and bring it in my sun room for flowers almost all year. Lovely plant.

Pee Gee is kind of sweet, especially for the millions of butterflies, dragon flies, bees and many unknown buggies.

Such a beautiful garden. Lovely plants. Do you prune the bougainvillea often to keep it short?

Yes but only the long branches. It stays pretty compact with the root trim I do each dig up.

Lots of you have seen my begonia baskets in the past. Here is the best one this year, (and it does seem late like everything else.)

And my Lantana is particularly happy this fall, too. It overwinters in the greenhouse.

I picked the very last of my blueberries yeterday. This picture was taken a month ago and the bush has probably provided us with at least a flat of berries this year.

Very nice! I had 1 lonely blueberry on my bush. It was rather comical.

Lynn ~ Check to see if the birds ate them. They stripped mine clean once they were ripe, although I did get a few. Next year I will put netting over the bushes.

Good idea. I thought I just had a strange little blueberry bush.

My chickens got loose and had a blueberry feast with my lower growing Sunshine Blue shrubs. These ripen a bit later, and I had been having a handful of blueberries every day when I came home from work. Too bad for me, but it sure was funny seeing "Sir Clucksalot" the rooster jumping to reach a ripe berry.

Your begonia basket is fabulous! You must have the perfect place for that one.

I think it gets mid-day sun and is against the garage so the reflected heat probably adds something good. They are always in the same location. They were good last year too.

My Blueberry bushes were loaded. The wind blew about half of them off, but we did get several good feeds.
Can't protect them from the wind here, it comes from both directions.
