May Garden

This is our north-side vegetable patch.  That’s a volunteer onion from last year, and then potatoes I planted in early March. I’ve added bush beans, carrots, melons, and more onions from seed.  We’ll see what comes up.  The weather is still a little erratic.

Here are the perennials.  From left to right, top to bottom: Silver Maple, Honeysuckle, Columbine.

The rose in the middle left is a huge joy for me– Sam was trying to swap the low rose with the climber (the low bush was closer to the wall) but he split the rose root-ball.  We put one half of it next to the fence, and it’s very happily sprouting new growth.  But the larger part with four years of tall old growth on it was dead. Dead. Dead.  Until last week, when a teeny tiny leaf bud appeared.  Hooray!  It’s a rose miracle!

The rose in the center of the collage was last year’s rose miracle– the moral of the story being that when I think my roses are dead, I need to cut them back and give them another chance.  It’s worked for me three times now.

The baby robins are growing.  They’re so big now that when the window’s open, I can hear their frantic peeping every time a parent appears with food.  Those robin parents are working so hard!

Bottom left: more columbines (the Colorado state flower).  Bottom center: M’s shoes full of seed pods and flowers from the lake.Bottom right: really happy weeds.  They like the rain as much as I do.
