What's in my bed? (May garden tour, complete with clickbait title!)

Welp, I'm a liar. By the time I post this, it'll be Saturday and I claimed I'd do it Friday.  And it's not like I think you care or mind but DANG it's not easy to...life.  At least not on time anyway.

But, good news- the disaster I've created in the living room has finally turned the corner to "slightly better than the most horrible it can possibly look" which is an enormous improvement over three hours ago which means yay!  Blogging at midnight!  Only best practices for this gal.  Ahem.

My garden tour is not as much a tour from point a to b but maybe more of a tour through time.  And I just told you that because I talk too much.


After the daffodils, this crabapple tree was the first to fully bloom.  It looked beautiful, yes.  And it smelled totally amazing, for sure.  But you guys the sound.  I wish you could know how it sounded to stand underneath  that tree and hear the hum of hundreds and hundreds of bees hard at work.  It was completely mesmerizing.


Then from the garden came rhubarb....
And along the driveway the honesuckle...
and lilacs, too (purple and white both, if you please).


Now I'm going to pick up a little speed and just boosh the pictures at you one right after the next without talking because lawdy it's fixin' to be 1 a.m. here in a bit. If you're itching for more about something, pop your question down below and I will answer lickety split.






























May, we can totally be friends.

    1. All of the perennials were already here! The only thing we've done is to plant some peas, beans, lettuce and spinach. It's the coolest :)

  9. I'm jealous of the rhubarb. I don't think I've eaten strawberry/rhubarb pie since I left Wisconsin 10 years ago. Thank you for inspiring me!

  10. What is that orange flower underneath the asparagus? It kind of looks like a poppy with extra petals. Gorgeous.

  11. You do make an excellent point. Being positive without any concrete action is wishful thinking. On the other hand, being http://essay-reviewer.com/ negative with concerted action can be self-defeating. Both healthy attitude (grounded in reality) and effective action are needed to maximize the possibility of good results.
