What Blooms in May in My Tennessee Garden?

Here is what blooms in my Tennessee garden in May 2010. There's always a lot to see this time of year and I'm sure I've missed some things but here we go!
Red Achillea
Patio Garden - Garden Shed in the background

Achillea, Phlox pilosa, and Catmint Combination
Deck Garden - The irises here are done but the foliage still remains.

Nepeta faassenii (Catmint) 'Walker's Low'
Around the Witch hazel with oregano sprawling around.

Self-sowing garden - not a big self-seeder but I like it so I put it there!

Purple Iris

from the Arbor Garden/Self-Sowing Garden

(grown from seed of an 'Oranges and Lemons' Gaillardia, definitely not true to type!)

White Iris next to a Japanese Maple
Arbor Garden/Corner Shade Garden

Asclepias tuberosa (Orange Butterfly Weed)
Rain Garden

Buds are all over

and Flowers are underneath!

Red Poppies
Self-sowing Garden

Salvia nemorosa 'Caradonna' and 'Snow Hill'
Front garden - I want to completely renovate this garden. I'll explain in a later post.

Thanks to Carol for hosting Bloom Day!
