Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, May 2021

Northeast Mississippi, USA, zone 7b
The 15th of each month is Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

Click on the photos to see them at their best.

My white rose bloomed in April and is resting awhile, but I have three other roses blooming.

And there are a few blooms left on the Kerria japonica shrub 'Pleniflora.' It may look like a rose, but it is not.

A Clematis whose name I have forgotten

Honeysuckle is an invasive vine, but very pretty. You just have to keep it under control or it will try to take over the place! The buds are pink, but they open white. As the flowers wither they turn yellow.

Another invasive plant - Thistle.

Butterweed, a wildflower

Another wildflower, Spiderwort

And now a look at things to come...
...there are buds on the Hydrangeas!

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!
