Slow down May ..

I can't keep up with  the garden actively all  the rain and sun May brings . I've already had to dig and move plants that I had grown from seed and had just planted out a few weeks ago. And  if I don't get around  every bit of the garden every day , I'm sure to miss something new  blooming .
Euphorbia oblongata  self seeds a lot , but it does  fills in and I love the freshness it brings. I always cut it  way back after  the other plants catch up , then it re-blooms or dies in some cases . no problem , no shortage of these .

Last year I moved most of the planting , trying to bulk up the fence line , now that the Bamboo is gone. 

This is where I've had to move my new plants I grew, I'm trying to extend the blooming in the shade garden , but the shade plants are not having it ... no space they say.

The area on the right of the central border is still a bit thin , all new planting in here. I've been taking it easy , didn't want to  plant over the top of something that hasn't come up yet , which I've done before.


  1. Your garden is looking fantastic as always. Yes, this is the time of year when we all want time to slow down as so many changes happen daily.

  2. There is nothing quite like spring !
