More May Flowers

Some more things are blooming in my flower bed, some of them for the first time!

Lupine and Peonies

I dug the plant with blue flowers from my friend's garden before she moved.  Can anyone tell me what it is?  I love the cornflower blue.  It made me realize that I didn't have enough blue in my garden, so I added a blue Columbine and a blue Balloon Flower...both Mother's Day gifts from JP and the girls.

Long live the Speedwell! (common name)

Glad it introduced a little blue into the garden. . .it's hardy, self-seeding, and so pretty. How fun.

I'm following the eggs with interest and hope you get some chicks soon.
