The garden in May

Oh dear! It seems we will have another difficult year in the garden. One warm weekend and now it is cold, wet, and windy again. The plants are struggling on, and some even seem to be thriving.

  1. Same here. Usually we plant our garden in the beginning of May due to threat of frost; however just recently we had to cover up all the veggies because of a frost warning. I am not sure if anything actually happened. By the way, those are lovely pictures.

    • I am pleased you like the pictures! The geraniums are about 2′ high, and more varieties are starting to bud, but my verbena bonariensis (incredibly abundant last year) is hardly showing. Next excitement will be the quince tree in flower for the first time!
