May Flowers

This past month has been a challenging one in the garden with freezes, hailstorms and wind! 

I finally purchased all my annuals for my garden but haven't gotten them all in the ground yet!

I have a goal of getting everything planted this weekend even though we have possible thunderstorms on the way again.

We did take a trip to Tulsa and visited a wonderful nursery that had online ordering and curbside pickup last month.   I was so excited to get some azalea shurbs, coral bells and hostas for my new flower border.

Since then I was able to safely get to the nursery with social distancing and a mask here in Oklahoma City to purchase the rest of my annuals and perennials
 for this season.

The weather is warming and things are really starting to grow and bloom.  My roses are still blooming and the knockouts outside my breakfast window are covered in blooms.

I planted some alliums last fall to see how they would do in my garden.  The bulbs are large and a bit pricey but I love the look and will be adding more to my garden.

My new flower border is filling in nicely in just one month.  


I took this photo today and it's still a work in progress but I'm pretty pleased with how it's growing.  I will add some daffodils and tulip bulbs in the fall.

Hope you are staying safe and enjoying
 some garden time!
