May Day

May came in with perfectly glorious weather, so I spent the day out in the garden, weeding, looking about, and soaking in the beauty... here's some random shots of what I was enjoying.
A drift of Anemone blanda
The crinkly, purpley, glossy leaves of Ajuga 'Metallica Crispa'
Another favorite Anemone, 'Bracteata Pleniflora'
The feather new growth of bronze fennel

The unfolding leaves of variegated honesty (Lunaria annua)
And, of course, the obligatory daffodils

This year is the first time I've ever seen A. blanda and I've completely fallen in love with them. I think I'm going to have to plant about 4 billion of them this fall (if I actually remember in the fall).

This is post is an interesting one. I am blessed to read this simple but meaningful post. Loved this post a lot. May Day (May 1) is a holiday rich in history and folklore, celebrating the return of spring! It has long been part of the celebration of spring in Europe. The flowering of fruit trees and sowing season was important to agriculturalists in the hope of a good harvest. Thanks for reminding us this day once again.

Wow! These pictures perfectly depict the month of May! Unfortunately, I hadn’t been able to go out much during may to enjoy this natural beauty, as I was busy researching the best dissertation writing service, to outsource my dissertation to. Anyway, I don’t regret it that much, because I found a good service and I landed on this page to see what May had to offer this time!
