Well the weather for May was unseasonably cool but it didn’t bother me because I’m not very partial to heat but today we got socked with temperatures up in the high eighties. I’m not too sure what the high was because I stopped looking at 10:30 a.m. when it was about 86 degrees Fahrenheit (yes I’m old school it should be in Celsius).
Anyhow I rushed down to take some pictures of the poppies in the garden because with the heat I’m sure they will be blooming soon. The couple of iris buds that were closed yesterday where open today and and I do have one red poppy showing. It should be a real treat in the next couple of days when they all pop open and I wanted to have a record of it.
Along with the flowers starting to bloom the weeds have come back with a vengence. It took about 3-4 weeks of work on the gardens to get them dug and weeded but you wouldn’t know it. The thistles have really deep roots and they’ve all come back including some in the raised bed that got put in. John sprayed them with round-up today, well most of them so I’ll leave them alone for a couple of days then dig them out. There doesn’t seem much point in digging out the weeds to turn around in three weeks and do it again. We’ll see if this works.
I have other plants growing but I’ll save those for a rainy day?
