    Gardening 2018

    Spring is trying to move in, and the garden is starting to show some color.

    Oh, how pretty! Thank you, Heidi.

    It is a rainy, damp day today, about 38 degrees F, but I still enjoyed walking through the garden to look at everything that's in bloom right now.

    So nice to see the early bloomers. I didn't recognize the name Pieris but with a google search, discovered some of us know it as the lovely Andromeda.

    Spring has sprung. Wait a minute, there's possible snow in the forecast for Saturday.
    I'm over it, I want it to warm up, and plant as many flowers as possible, and get my hibernating plants out of the basement!

    The gardening year is finally in full swing, and everything looks so beautiful after all the rain. Today we made it to 80F.

    Wow, where do you live that you can grow orchids in your garden?

    In our area, North Carolina, quite a few hardy orchids are growing.

    Lilacs in full bloom
    Scent the air with perfumed spice
    Memories, portent

    The heavy clusters
    Bend time, itís forever May;
    We are young once more

    Gathering armfuls
    From abandoned places, white
    And purple, fragrant

    Silent beauty like
    Love notes from ghost gardeners
    Tinged with wistful tones

    Karen, I just saw your picture of that beautiful lilac, and the haiku. I love the fragrance.
    The month of May has been a washout. And now, with tropical storm Alberto, there's even more rain coming.
    The garden, though, is growing well. But our deck can't handle all the water.
    Amazingly, the honey bees are finding their way between the downpours. The first tomatoes are appearing right outside the kitchen window.
