May - Spring Flowers

While my square foot vegetable garden is beginning to bare fruit, more flowers around my house are blooming each and every day. I guess the old adage, "April showers, bring May flowers", is mostly correct.  There wasn't much rain in April but there are May flowers.
Rose Madame Isaac Pereire

Budding white Iris with Red Poppy in background
"Johnson's Blue" Cranesbill or Hardy Geranium
2 Sambucus Nigra "Black Lace" bushes in full bloom
The odor is lovely, spicy with a strong taste of licorice
