I spend more time at tasks, but accomplish less; moving slower these years. We have had a very! wet winter and spring; the garden shows it, too. The weeds got way ahead of me and seem to be looking back, laughing and teasing at my attempts to get it all in control.
In May the Dogwood Trees dropped their petal-like bracts everywhere including the front porch and steps.
And guess who was back in the bird feeder outside the window.
In the E-Beds the daylilies were filling out. The pine bark mulch in the paths was replaced with gravel. One of these years I will use the compost that was made in that ugly garbage can, and get it out of the pictures.

Family members became excited when they thought they saw yellow peony buds.
But, of course they turned white.
Dame's Rocket (and spring bulbs) came and went. It looks so much like garden phlox (Phlox paniculata), but it isn't. Rocket blooms earlier and has only 4 petals to Phlox's 5.
And, what had looked like this last autumn:
Now looked like this even after taking out a huge amount of spring bulbs which were shared with neighbors and other friends.
