May Showers

Thunder is rolling in tonight, as if from the Hall of the Mountain King, but bringing with it much needed beneficial rain - the April showers that never really materialized... well, in April. 
Despite today's cloudy outlook, it was a good week in the garden - and I lifted only a few fingers.
The wave of lavender continues with lilac and the first clematis in bloom.
But there's still plenty of pink, too.
And, be still my heart!  Last year's fledgling cutting garden has self-seeded.  Plenty of Love-in-the-Mist  and scabiosa coming on strong.  Thanks, Belinda!

I have added lots of zinnia seeds to the freebies from last year.  Now, I just need to force myself to cut it heavily and bring it inside. 

I find myself wanting to sit and enjoy it, and not do anything - you know, like work.  Mulch is next!

Come join me on the deck for your favorite adult beverage - seriously!
