May has been really busy around here so my posts have been neglected while I dig weeds, plant seeds, mulch and mow. It usually doesn’t start this early. Heck, we’ve had killing frost up here in Northeast Wisconsin as late as mid-May. But this year, even though we have had some really cool nights, there has been no danger of losing plants. No, we can’t put the tomatoes out yet but Curt has the onions and spinach and peas in. And it seems like he has been mowing forever. I have been tackling the various flower gardens we have and once I finish up writing I’ll be back out there digging. May is also when the birds migrate through this part of the state and since we are birders that hobby takes up the rest of the time. The following is a quick trip through our yard.
Don’t get me wrong, I love our gardens but some days I think with just the two of us we may have overdone it a bit. I think I need a garden boy. How about one of those guys from the movie Magic Mike? When he was done weeding he could bring me a nice cold ice tea. Hey, a gal can dream.
Let me end with our bird of the week: a yellow-headed blackbird. So cool.
