My Mexican poppies are once again in bloom. I am happy that some came back this year – I probably tore some out in the process of weeding or planting other items (I like putting cucumbers in this area of my garden). You can see my Mexican pink poppies from last year.
I have no grass growing in the front of my house; instead, a variety of flowers are blooming. Many are perennials that come back each year, such as these white rocket-like columbines. Behind the columbines is a bit of garden phlox that my daughter and husband bought for me as a Mother’s Day present.
I do not know the name of this wispy, pink-flowered perennial, but I do admire its delicate nature.
I took lots of photos of my garden flowers and starting working on a post on how to use Pixlr, an online free photo editing program. The post will appear sometime soon (maybe sometime in the next two weeks? life is a bit busy) on Websites for Small Biz.
This coming week is the Jewish holiday of Shavuot. One of the customs is to decorate one’s home with flowers. I wonder what flowers will be in bloom in my yard that I can safely bring inside? I do have some blooming rhododendrons.
What perennials are growing in your garden?
