|An old-fashioned, rather wild rose blooms once a year and has a lovely scent.
|Please don't eat my roses, Buddy!
Early in the morning (4:15, to be exact) the wild birds begin a medley of melodies. Far too many bunnies of various sizes casually hop here and there with no fear, thankfully mostly on the lawn instead of the flower or vegetable gardens. Our young goats frolic while their mothers munch away in the meadow. Occasionally there is shrill cry, probably from a neighbor's yard, from one or more of our badly behaved guineas who really aren't sure where they belong.
|It has been many years since the David Austin Heritage Rose has bloom so profusely.
|The peonies were sparse and a little late this year.
|This simple rose has scented foliage. In the background is a bayberry bush.
Perhaps there is a month as lovely as May. It's called June.
|Allium christophii is one of my favorite alliums. The lollipop blooms add a bit of elegance to the garden.
|Allium christophii and columbine bloom next to the fence.
|A self seeder, Love-in-a-Mist, Nigella damascena, has a true blue color.
|Pink Missouri Primrose, Oenothera speciosa, is a cherished plant.
|The first daylily, Stella D'Oro, blooms next to the faithful salvia.
|Cheerful daisies were a gift from a friend and were transplanted this spring.
|A rose blooms on the fence.
|I am very fond of the Mock Orange shrub, Philadelphus coronarius.
|By the end of May, I'd like to have all my seedlings in the ground. These I started indoors.
|Cinco and Mayo, our twin baby goats, like to climb.
|Windy days brought an end to the poppy bloom, but it also brought rain, so no complaints.
|We have been enjoying lettuce and spinach from our vegetable garden.
