Early May in the Gardens…

So much of the Ways of Growing Things…

Is just Observation and Awareness…

Take a Good Look Around…

Is Everything OK…

Now look Closer…

Look Everywhere…

Wow…

Cool Moth by the Pond…

One of the Sphinx Moths…

aka…

Hummingbird Moths…

Hawk Moths…

This one’s the Tersa Sphinx Moth…

A peaceful guy…

Probably here to feed on the Honeysuckle Nectar out back…

He’s restin’…

They feed at Night…

The Confederate Jasmine is also Bloomin’ here…

It smells Good around here these Days…

Look…

Strawberries have started…

Work continues…

On the Pond…

Gettin’ Ready…

For it’s ShowOff Season…

And, of course…

The Greens are Bountiful…

Feedin’ three people every Day…

Kale…

Swiss Chard…

Assorted Lettuces…

A Big Part of Dinner…

And many Goodies comin’ up soon…

Tomatoes, Eggplants, and Peppers…

In the Second Garden…

Growin’ Strong…

On these Warm Spring Days and Nights…

And soon… The Snap Peas will be here…

A New Bed has been made…

Sunflowers and Herbs will go here…

So…

That’s a look around the May Garden…

With an Eye…

Towards Summer’s Bounty…

Be Observant…

Stay Ahead of the Summer Garden…

Too…
