A Wet Coast Day in May

It has been cool and wet this month of May. I am happy for the rain as our garden has been very dry. The rain did subside for a short while today and I took the opportunity to take a few photos in our back property. The white lilac is blooming and the buddleias are just starting to flower. I caught sight of bees in the lavender. The kale, Swiss chard and lettuce, which I planted by seed not long ago, will soon be ready for picking. Some areas where I weeded only a few days ago are now in need of weeding again! Oh well, I guess weeds have their place in this world too! Some weeds are edible and provide nutrition and other health benefits. I would like to share with you my photographs from today.

Happy month of May everyone and thank you for viewing my website.

So your lavenders are already blooming. Here in Paris region, at least in our garden, they did not start.
What's the last flower of your post ? I like the design and the color.

Your photos are amazing - thanks for the visit to your surroundings. Before digital photography, I likely would have waited until the plant or shrub was in full perfect bloom. Now it's so interesting to see the different stages of growth.

Michey your flower and croton photos are beautiful! So happy to see you getting such good results with the new camera. Of course it's the eye behind the camera that deserves the credit!

A lovely photo session, Mich! Love the side shot of the lilacs and cool blue chair. You live in a beautiful area, one I have always wished to visit ... perhaps someday :)

Lovely series of photos. I'm wondering what the fourth one is? very interesting looking.

Hi Michella, thanks for stopping by my blog and identifying the fourth photo for me. It certainly looks different to the budleia that I am familiar with. It looks fascinating.

Love the rich colours, would love to have coffee out on your back deck and admire the garden. Sniff, here it takes so much longer before we can see spring flowers, none of my tulips came up this year........I went our and bought some bedding plants and so will post mine soon

Hi Michelle, thanks for researching and coming up with a name for the buddleia. I will check it out and see if it is hardy to my Cdn zone 5. It certainly is an unusual variety.
