May Day

What a murky old day for May Day. I can’t imagine anyone feeling like dabbling in the dew this morning. In 2011 I was able to show a rose in bloom . This year there are buds but no flowers yet. Here’s some other pretty things photographed yesterday.

Airy Tiarella.

300414quince

Quince (Chaenomeles). This is a huge shrub and absolutely covered in flowers this year.

300414clematis

If I’m lucky, the clematis, rose and honeysuckle on this wall are all in flower together. I hope the others catch up with the clematis by the end of the month.
