May Day Parade of Blooms

Welcome to the lusty month of May! Spring is finally busting out all over even if it is later than usual in places. I've arranged a parade of my favorites to celebrate it. 

Long lasting carnations under the eaves.

The first blushing pink tulips of the season.

I learned from faithful blogging friends to add pennies to tulips to keep them from drooping.

Faithful pansies in pots.

Pure and graceful white tulip in back lighting.

Potato vine.

Serene white roses.

Armfuls of pink roses and watering cans.

English cottage dreaming.

The first shy spring blossoms.

Wishing you many more bloom filled days!
Ciao! for now!

Wow Us Wednesday

Don't miss these fun parties!
