Gillenia stipulata (American Ipecac)
Have a marvelous and magnificent May Bloom Day!
Now, it's time to visit May Dreams Gardens, where our delightful hostess, Carol, has set up the Mr Linky magic carpet ride to more Bloom Day posts than you can imagine. You're in for a treat~it's still Spring (and late Autumn in the Southern Hemphisphere) and gardens are dressed in their finest.

I love the variety of flowers you have blooming now. The downy wood mint really caught my eye. Thanks for sharing.ReplyDelete
Wonderful May blooms, Gail! Love those Indian Pinks. Ours was divided a few weeks ago. The bunnies have never bothered the original plant, but they promptly chewed the newly-transplanted division to the ground. It seems to be coming back, and for now I have it, and the original one protected.ReplyDelete
Love those sweet wood mint blooms, and the sundrops are such a cheery yellow.
Happy Bloom Day!
These are lovely blooms indeed! I am struck by the shape and color of that Penstemon...simply beautiful! My sundrops are budding now, and I look forward to their display as golden yellow as yours.ReplyDelete
Wish I had luck with agastaches. I'm trying again this year. Loved seeing your blooms.~~DeeReplyDelete
Beautiful! I can hardly wait for the sun to come up every morning so I can run outside and see what's blooming. After I get my fill there, I have to run back to the computer and see the beauties online! Love springtime!ReplyDelete
Beautiful Gail. I like to wonder around in my garden first thing in the morning to see what is going on. I have a glad that is blooming a red with a little white on 2 of the lower petals. Don't know how it got there. It's almost 5' high. I love it.ReplyDelete
Such wonderful flowers and stunning images, dear Gail! The Golden Jubilee makes me smile, named to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II's celebration in 2002. My planting returned for a second year as well, I am thrilled to share.ReplyDelete
Very pretty blooms for mid May Gail!ReplyDelete
Nothing brightens a spot like Sundrops! Lots of beauties there Gail!ReplyDelete
What I love so much about GBBD is being able to see flowers that I could never grow in my garden and (like today) discovering new ones I'd never heard of before - like your downy wood mint.ReplyDelete
Very nice macros. Love the last photo also. Aren't the Asclepias tuberosa just grand this year?ReplyDelete
What a beautiful GBBD collection, and nicely photographed as well. Is that the same Ipecac you get at the pharmacy?ReplyDelete
I almost missed the dear little creature on the mint. Gail, the tradescantia just jumped off the screen - it's been banned from my garden, but when I see your great photo, I almost want to let some back in. Perhaps I'll take a cue from you and reintroduce some Golden Jubilee in honour of Liz's Diamond celebration instead. Even if she or her son doesn't stop by, I know the butterflies love it.ReplyDelete
Wonderful images of your native beauties! I really must add sundrops and ipecac and re-add wood mint and Indian pink, they are so lovely.ReplyDelete
Such lovely blooms in close-up portraits. Hope you're having fun at the Fling. Sorry that I can't be there. Bridal party/shower tomorrow son's fiance.ReplyDelete
Love that oclorful spring you are encountering...I know that there will be spring blooms sometime soon here. But until then, I will see yours and wait for mine.ReplyDelete

I just adore the look of that downy wood mint!!! It looks like such a fun plant. :-) Hope you're enjoying the Fling!ReplyDelete
That downy wood mint is certainly gorgeous! I've got quite a lot of the "Golden Jubilee" this year...wow, that stuff likes to re-seed. But at least the seedlings are REALLY easy to spot!ReplyDelete
I love your assortment of blooms! I think that downy wood mint is my favorite.
