The whites take center stage
Have you been enjoying all the May flowers?
I sure have. Even though I see the changes of color in my garden every year I still get surprised by how each color seems to have its own time to stand out. Early spring always starts with a flood of sunny yellow from the daffodils and forsythia. Summer moves into the hot and bright oranges.
I’ve been outside doing a little weeding and prepping so I can plant my veggies this week. As I walked around, I saw pops of white everywhere. White flowers are certainly taking center stage in my garden right now.
I saw my first hummingbird of the year along with a butterfly and a bunch of bees enjoying the blossoms on this white azalea. I look forward to this shrub blooming each year. The flowers have a special glow, especially towards the end of the day.

What a lovely way to start my day by reading your beautiful and informative newsletter! Thanks for sharing all the flower pictures; I really enjoyed them.
Dave and I worked in the garden together yesterday. We drastically thinned and pruned our out-of-control yellow Jasmine bush. We were careful to look for nests first, and didn’t spot any. But a little chickadee came around to scold us the rest of the day. I think it was “his” bush, and I am still feeling bad about it. We are finally installing a drip system for the raised beds using supplies I saved from my original garden… so important for the veggies as we head into the hot days of summer.
Wishing you and Wayne everything good. (And fur babies too.) Keep up the fantastic art work!
