Garden Bloggers Bloom Day: May 2015

Happy GBBD! It's been a while since I've posted, despite having a banner iris spring and hundreds of volunteer bluebonnets I kept meaning to photograph. All this rain has been pretty amazing for the landscape; strangely, it's the sun that's missing (so unlike a typical May in Austin). Artichokes and the verbena bonariensis are the stars in front right now, as the magnolia perfumes the air. In back, the 2-year-old Passion Flower vine has totally taken over the fence and is creeping up through the pocket lawn (be careful what you wish for!).

Beautiful Magnolias!

Oh the passionvine - it amazes me that the darn thing sends up shoots like 3' away from the mother plant, and then another 3' from that and so on and so forth until it has taken over everything.

Be careful what you wish for, indeed! Is that a white firecracker plant in the last photo?

Jean, it's a yellow firecracker fern (sometimes it'll have a few red blooms or a red stripe here or there).
