Flowers Of Early May

The flower clock continues to turn.  New faces have emerged as welcome friends. Here May is an encouraging month when the soil begins to warm and garden thoughts naturally unfold.

I have been moving weeds from flower beds to compost piles.  Mowed the field grass for the first time and birds have found the cuttings suitable for their nests.  They land on the piles and then take off with mouths full of straw, slipping away to nests tucked in trees, bushes, and boxes.  Left some cloth scraps from prayer flags on a fence and a blue jay came and took them away for nest building.
