The lovely thing about our cold, grey May is that every bloom lasted much longer than usual, while the birds and bees had a feast.
See? Always a silver lining in the garden.
Life is keeping me busy but I hope you are all safe and well. And yes, Allen at New Hampshire Garden, the trout lily leaf at top gets bigger each year but still no accompanying blooms. 7 to 10 years you said? 🌾

i love your beautiful shots of spring
Thank you, Beth!
Just south of the border here in MA but yes, so wonderful to walk outside and see blooms everywhere. Our lilacs didnt do mych this year, and daffodils were without flowers, but the lilies of the valley are hanging on and my few italian oregano plants have expanded to a mighty squad! Here’s to Spring in New England!!
Here’s to spring, your region and mine! Sorry about the lilacs. We have one blooming and one non-blooming white lilac. We drove past a whole grove of blooming purpled and white lilacs yesterday on a country road and it was delightful. I miss our purple and French lilacs.
A good crop well photographed. That trout lily leaf is particularly intriguing
You have a nice variety of spring flowers and the cold does keep them blooming longer. Unfortunately, we have been having near record heat, so ours are going fast.
Lovely! has Hamlin been at it again? I was wondering what the Trout Lily was, will be beautiful soon.
That leaf is so lovely it hardly needs a blossom. Thanks for the beautiful tour. I have been thinking of you, your gardens, and your grandchild. Life must be busy indeed.
So beautiful and so ephemeral . Your garden , Cynthia , is a hymn to the spring .
Your flowers are beautiful, and the trout lily a puzzle! I am glad Lady Spring finally made it up your way, Cynthia! Down here, our daffodils are just a pleasant memory at this time, and irises are finishing their annual show, soon to be followed by the daylilies. It has been in the 80s for the last few days.
Wishing you and your family a peaceful, flower-filled season. ❤
Thanks for the lovely garden tour Cynthia. Thank goodness for spring flowers, books, family, and friends to weather this corona challenge.
Nice water feature! And 10 years waiting to get the flower? WOW
I love the different flower varieties in your garden.
Also the sculpture is beautiful.
Quite the opposite here Cynthia, we’ve had the sunniest May on record and virtually no rain – which hasn’t done the plants too much good!
Yes, they can teach us a lot of patience!
Thank you for sharing your May blooms! We’re finally blooming in New Hampshire as well.
Lovely pictures. Ah, yes, Spring. Season of hope, rebirth and quiet beauty.
Beautiful flowers! Thanks for posting them. 🙂
Thanks, Carla. I hope you are well.
Yes, doing very well! Our morning walks are fun – we have trails in our community, full of many birds, rabbits, and butterflies.
Such a lovely collection of flowers blooming in May! We had a cold early spring that also prolonged the flowering time of our spring blooms. We now have rabbits that are doing their best to eat as much as thy can to feed the new babies that keep appearing!
I hope you and your family are keeping well xx
Our best wishes to you and the family too, Clare. Regarding rabbits: I am still in my generous “they too need to eat” mode, but it will all wear thin as soon as they start devouring the vegetables my husband planted. Thank God for gardens though — pesky rabbits, chipmunks, squirrels and all. A balm to the spirit.
Wow😮😲 Lovely pics!Spring is the
Season of hope & rebirth 🤞😉👊🍀🍀🍀
