What's Blooming in May?

The Lakeside Nature Center gardens are blooming busily.  The spring ephemera have faded and the summer flowers are starting to appear.  Coreopsis is blooming in the fields along Gregory and in the glade to the east of the Center. 

The butterfly gardens are mostly blue and white; false indigo and penstemon are the predominant plants although tradescantia is blooming here and there.

In the beds in front of the center, both sand phlox and wood phlox blossomed during the first weeks of May. 

The beds along the wall glow with wild parsnip, penstemon and false indigo.

The wild garden behind the center is green and flourishing.  Earlier this month, both yellow iris and blue iris added color to the stream.
