I promised myself that as soon as I finished entering a bunch of data I would go out and take pictures of the garden to post on the blog. You may or may not be excited, but I'm pleased as punch to report on the latest growth.
The roses are going nuts!
There are rose bushes on either side of the walk up to the front door and it smells so good. Need any roses? Come by and take some. Really.
In other flower news, the first of the hollyhocks snuck open when I wasn't looking.
The vegetable bed is looking great, with beans and peas leading the charge.
One word for you: strawberries.
Finally, I wanted to show off my favorite flower: the agrostemma, which I discovered by chance at Annie's Annuals last year and continues to charm.
It didn't stop me from planting more of them. The one below still looks a little spindly, but it's just so sweet. I hope next time I report, the penstemon to its left will be blooming.
I'm so sorry to be missing the Lilac Festival in Rochester this week! But I'll manage with what I've got. Happy May to you wherever you are.
And now: back to work.
