Yes, the lusty month of May. May, full of visible energy as leaves and flowers unfurl. Flowers are lusty. They are all about pollination and fertilization besides being just plain beautiful. May always makes me think of that song....you know... Continue reading

Rose: Thanks ever so much. I know, I have no problems with a scilla lawn. Feed the bees. Lisa rules. :)

I do love them. Ha on pulling them up. I think we have all done something like that. Gardening has a learning curve doesn't it?

Kathy: You are so right but if the scilla did hurt the lawn, I would take the scilla first. I have an interesting pattern of scilla....they stretch from the bed to the woods just where I raked out that bed and dragged the seeds along. A path.

I hope your scilla spreads and feeds the bees.

This morning, the birds are singing, the grass is greening and the scilla are in full, blue bloom. Scilla siberica, to be exact. This little flowering bulb reaches about 3" in height in my garden and it naturalizes beautifully. I... Continue reading

I moved some of those snowdrops just yesterday Mary Lou. More rivers are in the future.

The snow has left the gardens but there are still a couple of mounds in the drive from the winter snowplowing. No matter since now the garden work can begin. The crocus are up and taking turns debuting their outfits.... Continue reading

and sing, and sing and sing!
It was gorgeous that day and I am sure this garden will live on. Glad you could make the trip via the blogosphere.
Oh, you are so right. The hour or so we spent there was just not long enough but I was lucky to see it.
Kathy, lol. I am an armchair traveler on occasion as well. Glad to help and glad you joined the tour.
