May Day minus flowers.
Rather, our morning walk took us out to the back
to view the neat pile of wood harvested from a recent limb-removal.
I transplanted a small twig of forsythia a couple of years ago (I think).
I had hoped for more vigorous growth but haven't really done anything to encourage it...
so (below) this is what we have as of today.
In a few days, our lilac bush and flowering cherry tree will be in full bloom.
I am enjoying visiting gardening blogs more than ever
since our own efforts have been temporarily suspended.
I'm thankful for a hard-working niece who will be handling the basic outdoor chores.
She's hardworking and thorough AND willing to do a few extras, too.
