May Showers...

Maybe we are having May Showers,
or April Showers in May...
 
whatever you choose
to call them...
 
it has been a wet week...
 

 
the flowers don't seem to mind
too much...
 

 
I've tried to pop out into the garden
and capture the rare sunny moments...
 

 
the Columbine
seem to twirl open,
in my mind anyway...
 


 
Allium standing tall...
 
maybe,
reaching for a burst of sunlight...


 
Lilacs, sigh...
 
I am having a love affair with Lilacs
this year,
and will show you more soon...
 


 
the first Tree Peony Blooms...
 
I plucked these
and made a bouquet,
that I shared with you last week...
 




 
Blue Bells....
 

 
looking up into the bright blue skies...
the Dogwoods pure white petals glowing...
 
I am linking up to...
and
 
 
Thanks for stopping by for a stroll...

So, so pretty! I am feeling quite envious of the gorgeous spring gardens in the Northern Hemisphere. We have winter to look forward to here. xxxx

I do love bluebells, I had a few goes but no success here maybe too hot or humid.

I always though it was April showers bring May flowers. They sure are lovely! I see those plants on campus quite often near horticulture department.
