Wonderful May weekend!

I've had a wonderful garden weekend with beautiful weather and I hope you could enjoy your gardens as well!

I took some photos too, For example these of my bleeding hearts. It's my fave blooming plant at the moment:




I've planted several new plants and flowers in pots and hanging baskets

and I finally sowed some seeds too

Auricula is blooming at the moment

and tulips are still blooming

and hycinthus and forget me nots

I'm enjoying it all so much!

Beautiful pictures Carol..... I can remember many years ago, when my hubby was alive, he was always working in the garden....and he put in a small pond....well we had several of them, because he like to change things all the time....but what I'm getting at is we had bleeding hearts around the pond and it was beautiful....and the grape hyacin (excuse spelling) he planted tons of them and every spring, it's like he comes back to say hi....he has been gone almost 12 years now.....and I just can't seem to keep with weeding, so I weed some, and make the other ones my wildflowers...lol thanks for sharing your pictures....by seeing your pictures and Sigruns, I feel like I'm visiting Germany....

Looks great! I just noticed I had left a comment a few posts ago and it's not there. I think I must have done the word verification wrong. I really should pay more attention:)

Oh Carol your garden and your photos are so beautiful right now! We do have very similar tastes in flowers. I used to have a few auriculas like yours but they disapppeared after a horrible winter we had a few years back. You have reminded me that I would like to replace them as well as my white bleeding heart. You have been very busy in your garden...good for you, I still have more planting of pots to do, but it has been a little bit cold here again lately.

r garden is looking wonderful. I saw some of those pink bleeding hearts at the weekend. I had not seen them before, people had planted them outside there caravans at the campsite. They are really pretty.

Hi carol, nice, that you have a wonderful garden-weekend. We have also had one too! I have potted some verbenas on my blue table, but it is so hot in summer, that I have a lot to do. My new border is finished!

Al, very happy

Every photo is like a real postcard, your photos are so beautiful. Yes, and a bleeding heart, like a masterpiece itself.

Carol, your bleeding hearts are gorgeous! I tried to grow them once upon a time and was not succesful. Your garden inspires me...we are going to make a patio outside our french doors and I'm trying to gather ideas that are creative but not to expensive. Glad you liked the rose pic I posted..by the way, its copyright free...I like that about it too. Its still chilly here, but temps will warm up and then dip back down towards Saturday. I want to plant some larkspur seed soon and get my nusturtions in the ground. I love how you have so many plants in containers.I think I'll try that...if hubby agrees?? =)

Carol? Are you living in the garden of Eden? You must have connections, such a viaruety grows amongst you! Ans then you have ls, and each of them a prettier color than the one before!! If this isn't Eden, then it is Paradise, if it isn't Paradise it is a reflection of your heart! That's it!!

Carol said...
