Sequoia Gardens in May - Flower Friday

Welcome to Flower Friday!! 
Mama here today, with Angel Dory's help, to show you around the May flowers blooming at Sequoia Gardens!! I'm excited to see the dahlia plants starting to grow. I'm hoping by July, the garden will be brimming will color!

In the meantime, there are more than a few orange daisies popping up!

I am missing my alter ego. 
Where Dory never met a stranger, I am more of an introvert...

This flower has me stumped...so many soft beautiful layers.

The Wysteria bloomed quickly this year, but it was beautiful while it lasted

The  yellow columbine is beautiful,

...as is the purple columbine.

"A Flower is a Smile from Heaven"

Are they still blue bells if they are right side up???

I  need help with this one, I do love all the little purply blue petals.

"Count the garden by the flowers,
Never by the leaves that fall.
Count your life with smiles,
Not the tears that roll"
Rishika Jain's Inspirations

The Johnny Jump Pansies are still blooming

I love the pale colors of these flowers...I believe they are also pansies, but the flowers almost look  snapdragon-"ish"!

Let's wrap things up with a delicate yellow poppy!

"If I had a flower for every time you made me smile,
I'd have a garden to walk in forever...."

Thanks so much for joining us for Flower Friday!!!

Hop aboard and show us the flowers blooming in your corner of the world (If you don't see the link here, please click HERE to go to our Hoppity page)!!

Beauty abounds... the wide layered flower among the columbine is an anemone... the blue one? Nothing to judge scale... could it be a ceanothus? just a guess. Happy Friday!!! Hugs and wags, YAM-aunty xxx

NC..what beautiful beautiful flowers. The columbine is so amazing we don't have those here and the Johnny Jump Pansies they are such a fun little flower.
Mom and I miss your alter ego,Angel Dory, too and cannot imagine how much you miss her after 13 years of living and loving and sharing your life with her. Mom knows from experience how Dory's was full of sweetness and sunshine and greeted everyone as the best hostess ever at the BAR. Lots of hugs Madi, Dory's BFFF, and mom

What grreat flowers! Grandma just put up arches in her backyard and planted wisteria. We can't wait to see it as pretty as that!

gorgeous flowers Angel Dory... I love pic of the wisteria over the fence. I read something last week about how dogs help introverts when out and about, they help make friends.
