May Showers and Flowers

Never mind the old addage, 'April showers brings May flowers', this is New England and the weather is always full of surprises. Just the other day it was a beautiful spring day in the 70's some places had frost warnings that night! May was very rainy this year though it did bring a profusion of greenery to our space.

With all the rain, the river is high, everything is lush and very peaceful. The Ducks and Geese can be heard early in the morning squacking their delight with spring.

Tall ground cover abounds hiding the beasties moving about. Well almost. :)

Not all is welcomed but we can live with it. Copious amounts of Poison Ivy.

Not new growth but interesting.

Beautiful big pink blooms on the Rhododendrum.
This bush was teeming with bee's. Tried my derndest to get a good picture but the best I could do. They dont sit on command.

Rows of Daylillies bursting up from the ground. Cant wait for them all to bloom.
Finally warm enough nights to move the cactus out. Being some of the slowest growing plants in the world, new growth is always so exciting. If U look carefully, the spiders have been busy spinning across this cacti.

And what a difference a week makes!

Johnny Jump Ups taking over last years tomato pots! Ive never planted any on the property but they're here and certainly pretty.

And of course what would spring be without a downed tree. :( This one came down overnight when we had rain, wind and thunder storms.
Fortunately the fence wasnt entirely crushed nor could the dogs escape. Once the tree was removed the fence was an easy fix.

Gorgeous photography! Loved the curled furry fern tendrils (say that 3 times real fast) in the second pic!haha

The Jump up flowers are quite startling. Never have seen them before.

Glad the fence didn't go down. Yesh, the old trees are lovely but even harder on your fences than the dogs are!

Wonderful flowers! Isn't spring grand? I love the lushness. Too bad another of the now scarce trees came down - especially over your fence! Glad it was still dog safe though.
