Monthly Photo Challenge: May Flowers


“April showers bring May flowers”…at least that’s what the old adage promises. Despite the lack of April showers here in Northern California, we managed to get some pretty flowers and full foliage in the trees.

I have heard that pansies are like a monkey flower–they mimic the monkey that’s looking at it!

these pansies should be smiling!

I wish you could smell the beautiful scent of the star jasmine plants that grow on my front porch.

You can see the Chinese Maple is fully leafed out and its brilliant leaves compete for green glory with the other Fruitless Mulberry trees in my yard.


Here is a gallery of the past four months where you can see the Chinese Maple change with the seasons.
