Our local public library has a very nice formal garden. In mid-May, mostly lilacs and tulips are blooming, with a few Centaurea starting. I took some photos last weekend.
So many lilac varieties!

In the shade garden, there was a trillium and some May apples:
And some ferns, Soloman’s seal, hostas, a stone wall … and an old Mercedes!
