Soft, moist air, sweet perfume and lush color everywhere; how I love rainy, May days in the garden. Raindrops make everything more beautiful . . .

And we do love it when the sun comes back again . . .

Soft, Slow Mornings

IMG_0723.JPG Slowly Down the Garden Path

After a very chilly April, May arrived and turned up the heat. Temperatures here shot up to the mid-eighties and nary a raindrop fell. Unpredictable is what we call typical, here in New England.

My garden design schedule is purposefully light this year. I have but a few projects on my calendar this spring, as my focus remains inside the painting studio and out of town with ongoing exhibits. This season I’m all about slow mornings and coffee in the garden with Woo.
