Pinks and Golden Yellows in May Garden

We’ve had a bit of stormy weather here in Kansas over the last few days – with more in store over the next few.

Some of our flowers, especially some of the roses, have gotten bedraggled. Others have really pulled through, thankfully, and they are some of my fragrant varieties; so that is quite nice.

The “Kiss Me Kate” Asiatic Lilies just started opening and are especially saturated with color – I think due to the cooler spring temperatures than we have most years. The coreopsis have also just started to put on their show for the summer.

As you can see from the photos, at this time of year, the color scheme for the garden is one of contrasts predominantly strong pinks and golden yellows. In a few weeks, that shall change. With its long bloom season and variety of perennials, the garden is always changing.

“Kiss Me Kate” mixed in with “Memorial Day” Rose. Spireas in the background and Golden Oregano as ground cover.

  1. Hasn’t it been an odd spring? We sat outside with friends last night and it was cool!!! (I’m in Oklahoma.) The flowers are doing well here, but so are the grasshoppers, so I never know what Summer’s going to be like!
