Now, let’s see. What’s in flower this month?

Oh blimey, I can’t be bothered to list all that lot. Right, so what isn’t in flower this month?

Answer: not much. May is such a wonderful, wonderful month to be in the garden, especially after all that bleak midwinter hoo-hah. It does your heart good to walk among the tulips and the forget-me-nots and the first roses of summer and just drink in all that colour.

But I must choose which ones to take photographs of this month as Carol at the topically-named May Dreams Gardens is hosting Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day: it’s probably easier to choose what to leave out than what to leave in.

I feel a slideshow coming on.
