Our Almost-May Garden

Ahhhh. Spring. Our garden is blooming and colors are everywhere. At this point in the year, most of what we have are flowers, pollinator attractors, but that is certainly not something to complain about.
In addition to a whole lot of lovely flowers, our strawberries are flowering and our first snap pea flower opened up yesterday. Signs of good things to come.
I need to find some more time to spend in the garden.. organizing and planting..... but at this time of year, so many things seem to be vying for my attention!

Do you have a garden? Would you share it with us?
Pin It Now!


  1. We have 2 small square foot gardens for food - just about the amount we can tend to right now. And random flowers and bushes everywhere - never a shortage of bees. I can't believe the weather this year, while our peas aren't flowering yet, some of strawberry plants have berries coming in. Yes, definitely a sign of good things to come (at least for the garden!). :)

  2. Gorgeous photos Taryn. You bet we have a garden :) First garden post is up today, it seems we were thinking the same thing today.

    Hope you guys are well.

  3. Beautiful photos!! gorgeous flowers. .. I love this time of year when everything comes alive again and there is blossom everywhere!
