We seem to be having May showers to go along with our May flowers…and May wind…and May heat. It seems to be consistently 10 degrees warmer this Spring than last year.
The bees are so busy collecting pollen. Although my camera isn’t fast enough, I will see 3 or 4 bees working one flower.
Even though I try to have a white garden in the front of the house, behind the garden gate is a riot of color. I occasionally will pair complementary colors together, but usually, I just throw them together to see what works.
I had an art professor in college that was fond of saying, there are no mistakes in art, only happy accidents. I guess I took her philosophy to heart because I have never forgotten it.
The poppies are still going strong, and the bees are loving them. They look as though they are in pure ecstasy as they burrow their little bodies amongst the stamens gleaning every bit of pollen they can hold.
Every time I look at the lovely larkspurs, I think of MSS at Zanthan Garden, who was so generous with seeds last fall when we met for the first time to tour the San Antonio Botanical Gardens.
Could this be PPPP?
