Outdoor Wednesday - What's blooming in my yard today

Well, it's May and here is what's blooming in my yard -
I still have some iris in bloom
My purple clemantis by the front porch has bloomed out.  The last time I posted a picture of this trellis, it was in 13 1/2 inches of snow! You can see some of my purple Dutch Iris still blooming behind this and past it the daylillies.

And the peonies are coming out. They will need to be tied up soon, they will be so heavy!

To see more incredible outdoor shots go to:

I have planted the wading pool gardens, I put some more dirt in them, and planted tomatoes, lettuce, arugual, 3 kinds of squash and a cucumber.  And the requisite marigolds to keep out the squash bugs!  Later I'll post pictures of them as they grow and hopefully produce!

The Cotton Patch is still just dirt, but I'll try to get it posted next week! 
 Have a great week and a great Outdoor Wednesday All!



  1. Those are beautiful flowers in your garden. I wish we could grow peonies out here. But I will I grow a rose called Mary rose. Becuase it has that cabbage form like the peonies. Have a good day..Julian

  2. THanks! My mother planted those peonies in the 60's and they are still going strong. I never do anything to them!

  3. Thank you for stopping by my blog. Your peonies look just like mine (the light pink ones). I do not know when mine were planted...they were here when we moved in...and our house was built in the 50's. They bloom profusely every year without fail. YOur pictures are beautiful!
