It's my month. I like May. Sometime this month we'll pass the last day of frost danger and I'll be able to plant out the tomatoes. The apple tree is in bloom, the lilac is going to burst into flower any day now, and my dwarf iris just exploded into flower today. I was out there yesterday and only two or three were open. Today it's a major deal.
Most of the tulips are open as well. This is one of the new ones.
It was about 75F today, the warmest day so far. I think we're due for more rain, but that's ok. I've got a ton of rhubarb to chop up and cook, but I'm not really interested in standing for that long today. I may go outside and putter.
