All the flowers are finally showing life! The second heat wave seems to be agreeing with them, and they're coming up... well, not roses. A bunch of other things instead! Even the ever-dominant thyme is flowering. There's plenty of new leaves to share.
The air's heating up out here, jumping up to about 90F on some days. It's not quite where it will be once we're up into July and August, but for now the garden is having a happy time of it. They hadn't quite gotten along with the cold, strong winds of late winter. Now they're having a wonderful time sunning and getting a green tan.
Memorial Day is just around the corner! That means summer is coming up fast. The garden is blooming and the leaves are... greening? Everywhere I turn, it seems like there's a little less room for me on the balcony. The plants are taking over.
Spring is an unstoppable force in the garden. The things that flower won't stop flowering. The things that produce food aren't producing food currently - the tomatoes haven't blossomed, the squash refuse to grow taller, and the cress has gone to seed. Still, there's plenty of new plants in the garden, and plenty of greenery to enjoy every morning!
Spring is showing off with the life it's breathing into the balcony plants. The Ginkgo is showing a great spread of new leaves, the sunflower is already spreading its pad, and the wildflowers are surviving over-wet conditions.
The garden is hopping right along as Spring gets underway here! All the plants are racing upward toward the sun, and even the Ginkgo has decided it's time to wake up.
