GARDEN : Mid-May Notes

The time of new beginnings. Little seedlings emerging. Trees blossoming. Red cabbage growing strong, thankfully still untouched by the cabbage worms that have been nibbling on the broccoli. Marigolds and nasturtium planted everywhere. One tiny asparagus. The flower bed bordering the milk house is now devoted to dyeing--marigold, cosmos, jet black hollyhock and Hopi black dye sunflowers. The locust blossoms hang heavy in the trees and the flowers rain down like snow. (More on that come Monday.)

Wishing you a beautiful weekend.
