Today in Nana’s Garden – May

May 10th, 2012 · No Comments · family, Garden, Musings, Nana

May has finally brought some well needed rain; and the flowers are looking refreshed.  Many are smaller than usual; I think the early March heat, and the April frosting confused them.  They don’t stand quite as lush and tall, and some seem a little behind in growth even with their way too early start!  But, […]
