Mama Kat Thursday: May Flowers!

This weeks Mama Kat blog prompt:
"April Showers bring May Flowers. Show us your May Flowers!"

A white ceramic kitty peeks out from behind Hosta that's between Red Saliva and Pink Million Bells in my front garden container!

A stone Hippo swims among wood chips beneath a Curly Parsley in a container on the back patio!(He's a gift a friend brought back for us from his visit in Africa.)
****

In Florida, May brings Easter Lilies! My house was surrounded by dozens of these all blooming at once!
****


May also brings Gardenias! This bush is heavy with blooms both new and old! 
****


In Florida, May is blueberry season! These are container blueberries.

My young tomato plants in my veggie garden!
The one on the right is bred particularly for Southern heat & humidy; the other is a Roma. Both are determinate, meaning they only grow to a set height.
 you look closely you can see Marigold leaves poking out from
,  under each--this is for natural pest control.

That's mine. 
What's growing in your garden?


Thanks for Visiting!

I love your spring photos. I like your little ceramic kitten. I only have roses. I need to make the area around them prettier. I'll have to work on that after vacation.

Love, love, love Easter lilies. I buy one in a pot every year for Easter and put it in my house. They have the best fragrance. Your flowers are beautiful!

What a beautiful garden you have! My outdoor living space is too small to make a garden so I am envious!

Lovely! I have clematis, gladiolus, moss rose, daisies, echinacea, crinum, and spirea. And I LOVE taking pictures of them!
