I am a little last minute with my entry into this month's ActiveRain challenge hosted by Debe Maxwell, CRS titled "May 2023 Challenge - Shower Power: Flaunt Your Fabulous Blooms Brought to Life by April Showers."
The perennial flowers my wife and I plant are mainly early blooming plants. They pop up late in March, and continue to grow through most of April, but then they are gone by the time May rolls around. The front of our house is normally covered with various types of daffodils as you can see in the picture to the right. You can also see the remnants of the daffodils in the feature photo above.
Also at the same time the azalea bush I have in the back of the house is also in full bloom, and it tends to keep its flowers into early May. This one will produce flowers again in the Fall.
In June a rose bush which, we also have in the back of the house will start to produce its roses, and will keep on producing roses until the fall. Unfortunately I have not taken a picture of the rose bush, so I am unable to show it in this blog.
The rest of the year we have potted flowers which my wife gets from my sons for Mother's Day. Below are the potted flowers they got her this year.
In June I will get her some potted flowers for her birthday, which she will hang on our deck. My wife loves her potted flowers, and will nurture them until they lose their last flower. The hummingbirds also love the potted flowers, and visit them through the day.
Also in June the plants on the side of our home, which you see below, will bloom and they will also continue to produce flowers until the fall.
This concludes my entry into this month's ActiveRain challenge hosted by Debe Maxwell, CRS titled "May 2023 Challenge - Shower Power: Flaunt Your Fabulous Blooms Brought to Life by April Showers."
