Happy May Day!

"When April steps aside for May,
Like diamonds all the rain drops glisten;
Fresh violets open every day:
To some new bird each hour we listen."
~Lucy Larcom

"Sweet May hath come to love us,
Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
And through the blue heavens above us,
The very clouds move on."
~Heinrich Heine, Book of Songs

Happy May Day!

This looks like what I imagine heaven being like! I would love to come have tea in your garden.

It's still cold in NM & supposed to be in low 50's today. I weeded the beds yesterday & ready to do my planting on Mother's Day Weekend. May favorite time!

Sarah said...

Yes, indeed. I've been in the garden much of the morning weeding and feeding. ;-)
What a gorgeous garden you have! My hands aren't as dirty as they are "green with envy". You have an amazing garden, Delores. The planted wheel barrow is such a charming touch. Thanks for sharing all this beauty! ~ sarah

I wish I could be getting my hands dirty in the garden today. It is so sunny and beautiful out.
Groceries came first, then lunch and now I have to go give a computer lesson to a local senior.
I am watching my garden grow at such a great rate of speed right now. Every morning it is noticeably more and more full.

Hi Delores, Yes, I spent the morning working in the garden. I planted twelve new plants and did some weeding and cleaning up. It feels great to be outside again after our rough winter.
