The month of May just sounds so happy, don't you think? Although I do believe April was more like May in my part of the world. Even though the gardener has to have restraint, sitting on the patio with Grayden is a lovely way to view our garden and relax.
The trailing vinca that Grayden planted is thriving. We've had wonderful rain and warm days to encourage all of our plants to do well.
We found a new outdoor rug for our patio. The old one had seen better days. It's so nice to have a defined spot on our concrete patio. As you can see the new rug is smaller than the old one, but the quality of this one is much better and hopefully will last longer.
Caution photo ahead is of a snake!
If you're frightened scroll on down. As I was hobbling along and looking down, I came upon a black snake sunning himself in the grass. I'm not a big fan, but I do know they have their place in our world. Considering all the moles and voles we've had in the past he or she can have all he or she wishes.
I can't leave you with that creature. Our roses are really doing well this year. They are blooming about 3 weeks early, but we are enjoying them so much. The Climbing Pinkie has just been the prettiest ever!

The Climbing Pinkie is not a full petaled rose, but I love her delicate bloom. We don't have a lot of sun in our yard that is required of roses. But I do have a couple spots here and there where I can grow them.
Even the knockout red roses are doing well.
Thank you for coming into my garden today. How is your garden growing these days? ♥
