What's growing May 1st

We ARE in Kansas, Toto, and things are not as they should be. It is unseasonally cool here, and we are about 2-3 weeks behind on bloom time due to the weather. On Sunday, May 1st, I walked the yard looking for what's blooming or about to.

The snowball bush is doing well.


The coral bells are just about to open, the hummingbirds really like these.


The Columbine is still in bud stage.


Variagated Solomon's Seal is just opening up.

Purple creeping phlox and Candytuft

White Yarrow

Peonies are budding.

While I was messing around taking pictures, a little head kept poking out of the wren house looking at me. I was not able to get his/ her picture, but the evidence of a nest is sticking out the sides.




Look at these weird, spidery looking things!



As they unfurl, they look like this.

To become this:

Autumn Fern

Your garden is looking beautiful. Love your choice of plants. I love peonies but I've never had much luck with them. Your Autumn fern is pretty and it so interesting to watch them emerge and change colors.
Thanks for your garden tour. I need to get out in mine but I was painting old deck furniture today.. yuk.
Have a good Wednesday,
Babs

Your flowers are looking good! I am looking forward to some warmer weather, too. Seems like we go straight from winter to summer around here.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! Those are about the only kinds of flowers I can grow...the ones on plates. Lol!
