Have you noticed that we’ve gone from monsoon season to August and now to early May? I’m loving the early May part, but really. Who can even kid themselves that this is normal weather? Actually, it seems like we may never have ‘normal’ weather again, doesn’t it? So our kids will have no idea.
The backyard is loving the sudden coolness. The nasturtium and all the various lettuces were really stressed by the heat. And my beloved impatiens were fading fast, particularly the ones that get just a bit more sun. Now they’re all happy again. The herbs, the asparagus and the collard greens really loved all the rain. The herb garden was set to take over the planet – all of last year’s herbs just kept growing and taking a bigger share of the bed.
I’m just going to love the gardens as they are, until the weather changes again. And then I’ll love whatever’s happening then!
