May is the most beautiful month... and we've been having an especially lovely one this year. And WARM too! In all the years I've lived here, I can't recall a warmer and finer May. Trees in the garden are in bloom. Our two ancient apples, one ornamental cherry. With the fine weather everything is thriving so well... and veggie seeds are sprouting-- VERY exciting!
This past weekend, when we went to that fabulous garden center (a bit like an amusement park for garden-lovers, it was...haha!) and we brought home a few extra herbs to fill in some gaps in the herb bed, and planted into pots. Mint, basil, lemon balm, parsley and sorrel. (Oh, and some new bright pink garden gloves may have found their way into the shopping basket too. ;)
The war on weeds is in full swing too. Dandelions are rampant this year! I've been saving some dandelion roots to dry for making dandelion tea, which is a very healthy tonic for the body. The rest of the dandelions can be composted as there are sooo many.
What's happening on your patch these days?!
P.S. While we're out in the garden... our little fur-princess plays "camping" under the tablecloth in the dining room... TOO CUTE!!
