Those of you who have regularly read my blog, know that I have large flower gardens. Usually, it takes me from late April until the end of June to get my flower beds the way I want them. I returned from Mexico in early May, and I will go back in early June. That means that I now have less than one month to try to accomplish everything. When I got home, the weather was not cooperating. The first three days it was constantly raining. The rain was great for my plants, but also for the weeds. On Sunday the sun finally came out. I have spent the last two days weeding, cleaning out and edging, but I have still not finished the flower beds in front of the house. I do not intend to plant any annuals this year; I will just let the perennials do their thing. Even so it is going to be a race to finish my gardening in time.
Here are a couple pictures what is already in bloom.
The columbines are especially pretty this year. They reseed themselves, so each year there are more and more.
The azaleas are also now blooming.
