May 15th, 2010

Some pictures from the garden, this lovely May day.



The little bit of cutting garden ready to be planted with fragrant night time flowers.

Late spring that feels like early summer, - at least today.

The darling buds of May

Half an hour in the garden this afternoon and everything was vibrating...

Wherever I looked the plants were pregnant and pulsing with energy, - busy, busy, busy in the little green factory, making buds for June flowers!

Earth's crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he who sees, takes off his shoes -
The rest sit round it and pluck blackberries.
-  Elizabeth Barrett Brownbing

There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
-   Anais Nin

Now that you've seen the preview, do come back for the SHOW!
