Forget-me-nots are among my most favourite flowers.
Our started vegetable plants await planting. Low temperatures during several upcoming nights come uncomfortably close to freezing so we are holding off. For now, we bring them out during the day to harden them off.
The rosemary (upper centre) will stay in its pot as will the lemongrass (upper right).
Our Redbud tree was in glorious bloom. We are blessed to have such a lovely sight in our yard.
First strawberry flower.
For us, the first half of May has been significantly colder than the historical norm, which has slowed down springs’ arrival. Then we had a month’s worth of rain in five days. As of Tuesday spring finally seems to be here to stay, which means that our redbud tree is bursting with colour!
In order to make close acquaintance with these Dutchmen’s Breeches, I had to get down to their level.
A favourite early spring flower is this, the Grape Hyacinth.
On April 15, snowflakes (called Christmas flakes because they were large and invoked a bit of cheer) nearly obscured the neighbours’ large pine tree.
Yesterday afternoon brought unsettled weather. There were several sleet showers, one of which left this BB-sized evidence of its passing.
