May is here! I think it is my favorite month, because it is in May that spring truly arrives in my zone 5 garden. We have had many beautiful days of sun, many quiet days of rain, and the last of the frosty mornings. Blooms are popping out daily and are deeply appreciated after our long winter.

Brunnera 'Hadspens Cream' stand in as forget-me-nots, but they keep going with their beautiful leaves in the shade garden all through the growing season.

The Birch Walk is really starting to look like something this month! So exciting.

I am always making room for those pretty violets, even in the paving cracks.
Tulip 'Rembrandt's Favorite' is a success is our Rose garden this month! I first fell in love with it at Chanticleer.
Lamium maculatum has spread quite exuberantly in the garden this year. It is welcome for its weed smoothering properties, pretty flowers and evergreen leaves. It will however, be meeting an end to some of its growth in some areas.
