Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for May

We have quite a number of blooming plants right now, but it’s been so wet lately that most are looking a bit rain-addled.

I love these Kniphofia uvaria or red-hot-poker plants even though these spikes are about done. They are the most beautiful orange.

They have bloomed steadily since we arrived in September.

My favorite blooms today are from a pink bougainvillea growing up into this conifer (I don’t have a name for it). They are now eye-level with our upstairs bedroom windows.

Bougainvillea is planted all along the front of the garden and is kept severely clipped as a tall hedge, but a long branch has escaped and has almost reached the top of the tree.

To see what’s blooming in other garden bloggers’ gardens, check out May Dreams Gardens.

(It’s raining again.)

  1. I only had one red hot poker flower last year. I’m hoping for some more this year. Happy Bloom Day!
