The May Garden

It’s great to be back in the garden. Winter was fairly mild this year. The main issue this Spring is lots of moss. I’m talking moss everywhere. Even though it’s beautiful, it’s a symptom of the declining health of my lawn. As the trees get bigger and the yard gets shadier, its inevitable the lawn isn’t going to thrive.

My solution is pretty simple. Make more room for flowers and get rid of the lawn. Easy peasy!

 

Libertiny garden

Our new garden fountain has been one of my favorite additions to the garden. Tom and I bought it at the end of the season last Fall. It makes the most peaceful sound and the birds love it.

Last Fall, Tom received a bag of free tulip bulbs. We had no idea what color or kind they would be. What a delight to see that almost every bulb was the happiest color yellow. These will look great in a sea of forget-me-nots.

The Spring flowering shrubs are starting to take off.

My absolute favorite thing is the concrete bird bath we bought last year. You can see it in the distance in this photo.

“Forest Pansy” redbuds in bloom. The purple flowers look great against the bright green of new spring foliage.
