Spanish lavender blooming. Hanging baskets are up. Bought 21 this year. I'm taking on way too much this year. I have set up my drip system for 8 of them. (the other 13 are already set up on systems I've installed previous years, including the baskets in this pic, thank goodness).

Beautiful all.

I apparently am unable to load 5 photos at a time - is there a trick to that? I've tried 3 times and it takes forever and then kicks me to the general forum page with no photos uploaded. Sigh. I'll upload individually I guess.

Looking out my kitchen window. Iris, volunteer corydalis, centaura.

I love this sun rose. The middle spill is where a rock dislodged from the wall and the plant filled in. How cool.

Wonderful pics. Awesome in fact.

I second that! That little peek out the window looked like your new patio? It looks so good.

My friend's husband owns a metalworks company. He designed and made me these plant stands. I have two of them. They each have 4 arms, and hold 4 hanging baskets. I absolutely love them.

Wisteria story: When my youngest son was about 8 or 9, he noticed the way a wisteria wrapped around its support and commented what a great torture that would be to coil a plant around a person and let it slowly squeeze.

Clever little boy. I could see that happening. Hahahaha

King's spear is opening up (Asphodeline lutea). This is another plant that is supposedly fragrant, but I cannot discern anything at all. Does anyone else not smell this...or smell it? Could just be my nose, I rarely get anything out of sarcocoocoa which most folks rave about.

Dictamnus alba. I haven't yet tried to light the gas on this -- has anyone else had luck with that little trick?

BH---those are new ones to me. So I don't have them. But thanks for posting---I read about them, and learned a lot.

As always, beautiful pics Beahive.

Love to see the deer. The fawn is early, it is usually June before you see them. Or are you just a little warmer than we are? Peony also, I have tight buds. Love the iris.

Vashon, WA(Zone 8b)

Beautiful pictures everyone. I love seeing your gardens and plant close-ups.
Say Willow, I'm still planning on coming over to your place this coming week to help in your garden -- any way you want. I can't remember for sure what day we settled on, but I think it was Monday (Memorial Day). Is that still good for you? I have some dwarf irises already potted up if you are interested.

Dallas, OR(Zone 8a)

ww, I was surprised to see the fawn this early too. I moved here late June last year and I did not see any until Mid-july. I think this one was born in my neighbors back yard( which is overgrown and has some good areas for them to hide in) as I saw the Mother deer doing some strange and interesting twitching, stretching ,posturing tuesday afternoon. She looked a bit uncomfortable ..labor does it all us gals.

Foxglove meadow. Backed by lilac, thalictrum, and coastal strawberry groundcover. Camelot series foxgloves. Many more coming from self sowing. I also added a lot of 'Candy Mountain' to this area for next year, and perhaps some first year blooms later this summer, too.
