April Showers... Brought What?!

While I was occupied the last couple weeks (seriously, where did April go?), the yard and garden were busy doing what yards and gardens do. As usual, there are many garden projects in process such as planting, moving, and removal of all things large and small. It's easy to get overwhelmed when thinking about the limited seasonal windows. When I start to feel a little bogged down by all the projects, I find it recharges me to walk around and watch the progress of things, especially in the spring. Behold May flowers, "the march of the weeds," and some others that are moving along quite nicely... I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I did taking them. Have a great spring weekend!

These are beautiful!!! I'm jealous of your lilacs! The azalea's here are gorgeous, but I've not seen one lilac.

I love all of your photos. I was very sad I missed the lilacs. I went to my Mom's last week and they had just finished blooming. Living in the city is fun but I do miss the plants!
