May

Happy Mother’s Day.  I lost my Mom almost six years ago.  She was a great gardener, and I still have some of her plants in my garden.  That’s the thing about gardens, they can keep those that have passed always with you.

April and May have been exceptionally wet here in Massachusetts.  We have Ireland level green though, and all those showers certainly brought May flowers.
