My garden may be neglected this spring, but the perennials that usually flower in May are blooming.
The lilac bush at the side of the house bloomed especially well this spring, and its heady perfume can be smelled some distance away.
The pink azalea with rosebud-like blossoms always blooms later than the other azaleas. It is now starting to flower.
The deep purple iris in the front is always beautiful. However, this year there are not as many blooms as usual. The rhizomes (bulb-like roots) probably need to be separated, but that is something that I will leave for the new owners of the house... if they know anything about gardening.
