My second day lily in bloom, this is the only colour that blooms in my garden.

Hello and welcome to garden blogger's bloom day where gardeners around the globe show what is blooming in their gardens. I am really happy to see the garden green again from the May showers that are giving us some gorgeous blooms. Remember folks, those of you who live in this part of the world it is time to start cutting back if you haven't already started. To see more blooming gardens please visit Carol at may dreams gardens

The lusty month of May

delicate white Duranta
white Mussaenda
Barbados Amaryllis  in their glory
potted red Amaryllis giving some quadruple delight
pink apple blossom Cassia (cassia javanica) letting us know that spring has definitely sprung
a new addition to the garden the double red Mussaenda
the Zepyhranthes or rain lilies are out in full force after the May showers

Tra la! It's May!
The lusty month of May!
That lovely month when ev'ryone goes
Blissfully astray.
Tra la! It's here!
That shocking time of year
When tons of wicked little thoughts
Merrily appear!
It's May! It's May!
That gorgeous holiday
When ev'ry maiden prays that her lad
Will be a cad!
It's mad! It's gay!
A libelous display!
Those dreary vows that ev'ryone takes,
Ev'ryone breaks.
Ev'ryone makes divine mistakes
The lusty month of May!
Whence this fragrance wafting through the air?
What sweet feelings does its scent transmute?
Whence this perfume floating ev'rywhere?
Don't you know it's that dear forbidden fruit!
Tra la la la la! That dear forbidden fruit!
Tra la la la la!
