A few weekends ago my husband and I, along with two of our friends, finally made the trip to the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens. Everything was in high bloom: the cherry blossoms, the lilac, the wisteria. The poppies, ranging from stark white to that deepest, darkest purple, stood erect with their petals bowing backwards, allowing the sunlight to pool in their open blooms. I've posted some of the photographs I took on our Facebook Fanpage - please, go ahead and give them a look, and see if you can't also help to identify a few of the plants whose names escape me!
Following my multiple Springtime flower obsessions, I thought it'd be nice to give you a post featuring pictures of flowers that bloom (or reach their pinnacle) in the month of May. You remember that old saying about April showers. So, there. That's it! A bare-bones, strictly visual post about May flowers. Let me know if there are any varieties (or colors!) that you'd like to see included, if I've forgotten them.
