~About the Garden Mid-May~

by Cynthia mybloggingplanet.com

Just a few photos from the garden this week…..

It seems the garden grows on– with or without my TLC!

Comfrey in Flower

The Comfrey is now in full bloom. I never get tired of those sweet little pink flowers.

Lemon Balm

The Lemon Balm is just beautiful right now! I have been enjoying fresh Lemon Balm tea for the past couple weeks.

Dandelion gone to Seed

The Dandelions I only just recently blogged about are already going to seed.

Orange Mint

Orange Mint looks so pretty coming up here and there at the back end of the garden.

Strawberry in Flower with Lemon Balm

I have strawberry plants scattered here and there throughout the herb garden and here are a few in bloom next to some more Lemon Balm.

Thrift in flower

These cute little flowers are from a potted thrift plant that I thought did not survive winter and was tossed next to the compost. I guess I was wrong because here it blooms while growing upside down! It’s root ball can be seen in the bottom right hand corner of the photo.

Hard to believe we are almost through Spring. How is your garden growing as we begin to approach early Summer?

My garden is growing in fits and starts! It seems some of it is loving this cool weather, the rest of it not so much. We are going to get some warm days and sunshine at last, so I expect the garden will appreciate it. I wish it would grow as well as your throw away flowers :-)

Beautiful pictures. They brought some warmth on this cold, rainy day!

Thanks for all the nice comments everyone! Hopefully I can get out to my poor garden more this week before the weeds take it over!

We have had some pretty dismal weather ourselves Kim. It seems we are going to go straight from winter to summer. Guess we weren’t meant to have a spring this year. The garden shows it too sadly.
