Oh May!




Oh My! May I Show You May...?

Shall We take a trip into the recent past and stroll through my garden when May is first Whispering to the Earth and the plants are still Shyly responding... I know I have promised you these visits... and have failed to keep my appointment.... But Quick, before we have forgotten.... here is Spring Newly Sprung at my Gate...

The Bleeding Heart is just beginning to unfurl....

And Narcissus 'Salome' opens it's pink cupped trumpets...

And 'Thalia' too, with it's nodding double blooms...!

And with every passing day the leaves are growing, 
adding to the dappled shade of midday...

And new buds that promise soon to reveal their Glory....

Starting as a gentle Serenade....

A Delicate Froth.....

And the Lilacs give their All early....
Scenting the air... nodding in the breezes....
And just as quickly fade away....
The more valued for their brief splendor!

 
While others are slowly advancing...
(Watched by he who rules the garden....)

Until no-one can ignore their exuberance!

And the pristine beauty of an early morning after a rain......


When every blossom cries "look at Me..!"

And look we must.....

And even the Leaves are Dew adorned.....
Dripping pearls at every lip....

And glitter with the dusting of diamonds.....
And Fascinate us... 
long before the blossoms are even born...!

And the wild Columbine bursts forth from between the cracks....
Self sown... and self Sufficient....
That beautiful and rarest of hues...
Blue....

Pansies too....

And amongst the rampant growth of Iris swords......
The stray tiny bells of the lily of the Valley....
Oh, can you hear them ringing?

And before you Blink... A Month has flown.....
And the Lush growth of Summer is on the cusp....

The Clematis at my door unfold their pearly petals.....

And the Iris too...

The columbine is no longer shy, 
but dances with a cheerful crowd....

And so eager are the Summer's Belles....
The first Roses step out on the stage.....

"Crown Princess Marguerite'
Fragrant, abundant, Magnificent in full bloom.....
Just teasing us.... because it is Not Quite June!

And let's not ignore the Honeysuckle.....
Preparing for it's William Morris Moment.....
Lush, Lyrical, Exuberant, 
Oh! Was that only May....?

I Promise you, June......
Soon!
