Mid May Garden

I am still on a blogging break but wanted to record the garden's progress so far this month.  Things of note include the white wisteria which always has more foliage than flowers.

The wild patch has been overtaken with pretty blue borage. EDITED:  Thanks to Toffeeapple's observation I now know that this is not borage and is in fact pentaglottis sempervirens otherwise known as bugloss or alkanet. 

The strawberry patch is covered in white flowers with little berries beginning to form in the centres.

It's good to record the changes in the garden. Your white Wisteria is beautiful. We have little white flowers on our strawbery plants too. Have a happy weekend:)

The wisteria is beautiful. The one and only time we went to the Hampton Court flower show borage was everywhere, it's so pretty.

Gorgeous wisteria! You've obviously got the knack for pruning it.

Hello Simone,

Love your garden blooms, our Borage is flowering at the moment too.
One day I hope my Wisteria will look like yours.

Happy gardening.
Bev.

That doesn't look like Borage to me, Google can show it to you though.

Hi Toffeeapple! So nice to see you here again. You are right. After further investigation I found out that it is in fact Pentaglottis Sempervirens otherwise known as bugloss or alkanet.
