The spring flowers on the Pieris "Forest flame" are still smelling beautifully while the summer flowering Poached egg plant, Limanthes douglasii, is bringing in the butterflies, up my garden on the last day of spring.

Shall we make May31st the last day of spring?  New thread tomorrow?  I have been up the garden this morning.  Lots of summer flowers out already.  Here are the first of the osteospermums.

Right, let's try with my Peony Dai JIn which has white, red, pink and occasionally red and white striped flowers on it.  Reduced kb's.

Amazing what a few hours of sunshine will do to peony buds.  Here they are four hours later.

One Spring sweetheart i love to get close to every May is my tree peony, Dai Jin,  It is supposed to have red and white striped flowers - well, I had one once but mostly they are all red, all white or sall pink but ten three different flowers on one bush is pretty clever,  But what gets you running to, even in bud is the amazing perfume,  Heavenly. Here it is this morning.

Go back to some former pages on this thread - they have sorted the pictures on the earlier pages and may be working their way through.  Lovely enlargement of the purple pasqueflower.
