How quickly the months are whizzing past – it is that time of the month again when Carol from May Dreams Garden hosts her G.B.B.D. So check out her blog – and see what is blooming in Carols garden – and in other gardens around the world. Also Carol has received 5 Mouse and trowel Awards – Congratulations Carol – well deserved.
If there is one bloom that describes my garden this week it is Aquilegia.
A. vulgaris, is a British Native flower – and self seeds with abandon all over the garden – usually in a dirty pink colour, but it is pretty in a cottage garden way – so for now it stays. Among the pinks there are a few purples and blues

The other prolific self seeder in my garden – and one of which I am very fond is Honeywort (Cerinthe major “Purpurascens”)
I never pull these seedling up – however inconvenient a place they choose.
Hardy Geraniums are also very happy here – and spread throughout the garden giving lovely soft mounds of ground-cover. I was delighted that this one Mourning Widow (Geranium phaeum) seems to have followed me from my last house. I think it self seeded in the pots I moved.
Also in bloom are a Rhododendron – whose name I do not know
The last of the tulips
(complete with ant!)
