Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - May 2016

Hello and welcome back to my Algarve garden.

Summer flew in for a short visit at the end of April. Then the rain returned and last Tuesday it seemed we were back to wet, cool, windy weather. Whatever happened to Spring? Well, I'd said it finally put in an appearance the day before yesterday. That's when I did the first bout of gardening this year! I was so out of practice that now my whole body is sore.

The recent heavy rain has ruined some of my rose blooms but there are still enough to brighten up the garden.

Aren't these tiny, fragrant, pink roses perfect?

The last of the white lilies.

yesterday, today and tomorrow
I love the way the flowers open this colour and then fade to white.

After years of never seeing the Clivia flower, I have this explosion of colour in a shady area. I am so pleased.

Don't forget to visit May Dreams Gardens. See you soon.


  1. Those lilies are amazing and you say they are the "last", only my Madonna lilies are just beginning, the rest will be a little later.

    1. Yes, these usually bloom after Easter. The oriental lilies bloom later.

  2. Here heading in to winter it is lovely to see these beautiful colours.


I love hearing from you so please leave a comment...
