Here we are in late May. Of course, we were treated to a couple weeks of stellar weather then shunted back to the Spring rains for a while…easing back into the sunny days of late Spring just in time for the weekend. Digging is a pleasure in the days following the rains, at least for me.

Thankfully, the warm air has stuck around keeping the world safe for tomatoes, peppers and basils. Marigolds dot the landscape as Dahlias peek through the strata and begin their journey sunward. Peonies are exploding all over town soon to fill the air with that dreamy scent.
