Oh, Lovely May
The weather has really been smiling on us for the last few days. Lots of sunshine and milder nights. I may even dare to plant some annuals. Our area is not considered safely frost-free until after Memorial Day, but the forecast looks very promising. Since all my planting is done in containers, they can always be moved if we get a late frost.
Dame’s Rocket is in bloom everywhere. Apparently this is yet another non-native plant, but it is very attractive and brightens up the ditches along our road.
The geese in the Park have babies, and seem a little put out with us when we walk by. The swans are still here, but no sign of babies for them.
I have dared to put away the ugly hats and scarves of winter, and keep a lighter jacket by the door for our morning walks. This morning I did not even need that. I do love May!
