Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

May Flowers

That saying "April showers, bring May flowers" is so true. Here it's mid-May and the flowers are in their glory. I love this time of year when everything is the greenest of green and the flowers are opening daily. This is iris time and I have so many more blooming or waiting to bloom than I have ever had. My dividing and transplanting last year has really paid off.

I stood in the center of the perennial garden and took photos of each of the beds. There are eight in all designed like a compass rose. Something is blooming in all of them, even the one dedicated to herbs has chives and sage blooming.

I love the layout of your perennial beds. Everything is looking so alive there. I really need to get to work on my beds and get them in shape. Two really need to be dug up and redone. A couple of years of neglect has done them in.

Your gardens are beautiful! Mine are barely coming up right now. Maybe I'll put some pics on my blog today.
