Every time I looked at my garden this week.
Alan Lerner’s words from Camelot
Kept going through my head.
“It’s May, It’s May
The LUSTY month of May.”
And lusty it is.
I don’t know how Mother Nature pulls it off
But every year on Mother’s Day
My garden hits its spring stride.
There is still much to come
But this week
With lots of blousy blooms.
Perhaps it’s Mother Nature’s way
Of honoring mothers.
Those who nurture
And encourage things to grow.
Happy Mother’s Day
Four generations of the women of my family circa early 1950’s

Your flowers look gorgeous as always. 🙂 My peonies are just starting to bloom and I’m south of you, although I think we have our own little micro climate here, as it is always cooler here than the surrounding area. But the irises have been absolutely the best this year, don’t you think?
Yes, it seems to be a very good year for many things.
