May: It's late, I'm sleepy, here are some plants

Japanese maple 'Sango-kaku'

Weigela florida 'Ruby Queen' - I don't much like these shrubs, am shopping for replacements

Aquilegia canadensis, extreme closeup!! with pistils crammed against camera lens

Panicum virgatum, switchgrass, with adorable tiny furry flowers

Drumstick allium poses complementarily with the neighbor's Euonymous

A glorious 3-day weekend of gardening and other non-work-related stuff stretches before me. Time to go rest up!

Well, they're not doing very well, but I also find the flowers kind of misshapen and excessively pink. Which I suppose I should have known when I planted them!
