More Than a Moment

This picture was taken on 17 May. New things have come into flower in this garden since my 5 May posting and a few have hung on.

Several days later on 22 May no picture would be complete without including the foxgloves.

It is difficult to create a garden that is showy all season long. So often there is one big explosion of flowers followed by nothing much. I am pleased so far this year that one of my rock gardens has been exciting throughout the month of May, at least. My last posting in early May included a picture of the garden that I was proud of. This posting includes subsequent pictures in May of the same garden in about the same spot as the first. Of course, when the foxgloves and the cheddar pinks are finished the show will be dramatically muted, but I think it will still be of interest. Perhaps gratification will come from the little plants blooming in the cracks and crevices of the rockery.
