May is here. Just the word “May” conjures up all kinds of wonderful things. This year we are still in the throes of a long cool wet spring. The upside is that the wee spring things last longer and the heat doesn’t do them in. April showers do bring May flowers. And e.e. cummings wrote that spring is ..”when the world is puddle-wonderful…” I have always loved that line. The garden is exploding with new things every day. Shall we have a look?
The ephemeral bed….
Old man willow is putting on a show.. this is his good side. The other side is completely rotten and sadly, this is his last spring. I am going to miss him.
The forsythia hedge is a welcome sight on these gray days.. Redbud in the foreground
Red buds getting ready to pop
Pussytoes and blue Pulmonaria under the birch
Another Frittilaria – I’ve lost the tag with its full name …
