But what about other regions of the US or the UK? Go here and follow the links to learn more about stone in the landscape. Enjoy!

Yesterday, between the rains, I managed to snap a few photos of this month's featured flowers. A number of plants have just finished flowering and many more are just gearing up to bloom. Here are a few that are prime for May's GBBD...
|bronze-leaf ajuga, Ajuga reptans 'Atropurpurea' (a bit of Chrysnathemum and Geranium foliage mixed in as well!)|
|candytuft, Iberis sempervirens (with dragon's blood sedum in the foreground)|
|last of the tulips, Tulipa sp.|
|first of the native spiderwort, Tradescantia occidentalis|
|creeping Oregon grape holly, Mahonia repens|
|Turkish speedwell, Veronica liwanensis|
|woolly creeping speedwell, Veronica pectinata|
|basket-of-gold alyssum, Aurinia saxatilis|
Warm season grasses versus cool season grasses, that is.
