Flowers

Lately, huge amounts of rain have made gardening and just being outdoors extremely difficult here in the mid-Atlantic. Earlier today there was a brief respite in the storm and the sun began to shine. Usually by mid-May our cold-weather crops, such as greens, cabbage, kale, lettuce and chard have been planted without fear of temperatures dipping below freezing… too often. Lately each day has been cold, dark and damp.

No matter how much cloud cover there has been recently, the earth is still doing what must be done to change seasons and flowers were blooming most prolifically. Staking the peonies was a must, cutting a few of the purple irises for indoors was a delight and seeing the hydrangea making a valiant effort this year…well its all astounding!!

Garden stylishly,
K
