The garden in May

It has been cool and wet this spring, but the plants don’t mind. Things are growing and blooming and going bonkers… I wish it could be like this for the bulk of the year, instead of just a few fleeting weeks.

This time of year is so exciting. I find out what survived the summer and winter, what I planted and forgot about, and what has multiplied and where. It’s a surprise every year.

Yesterday was the annual used record sale that my husband looks forward to all year–he says he lays awake the night before, too excited to sleep, like a kid before Christmas. One of his buddies, his uncle, and two of his uncles buddies came down for it this year–and they brought his aunt, who hit a nearby outlet mall with me. It was fun to do some serious shopping and I came back with five no-nonsense neutral tank tops. It seems like they’ll go well with the several pairs of brightly colored summer pants I intend to wear, and also provide a good canvas for statement necklaces.

This morning it is wet and cool and delicious again. Mimi has eaten bacon, helped me pull weeds, and drawn with markers. I have no idea how we’re going to pass the rest of the day, but I’m sure it will be lovely.

  1. Love the purple petunias! All of your plants are gorgeous! We have also had a very cool, wet, grey Spring and after the flooding rains this past weekend, I really need to see the sun!
