A Good Home

Spring Sprung

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? ๐ŸŒพ

  1. 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!!

    1. Hereโ€™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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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. โค

  4. 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

    1. 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.
