We had a lovely day for May Day here yesterday, with a gorgeous blue sky, puffy clouds, and warm weather. The trees have leafed out in their spring green, and the hills have not yet turned from their winter green to their dry summer gold.
My roses are in their first bloom of the season, and my Mom’s garden is producing a heavy crop of fragrant sweet peas, which she generously shares. The yellow roses above are David Austin’s Graham Thomas. The sweet peas, also shown above, self sow each year.
I shipped my display to the AIX fair and look forward to seeing how that goes next weekend. I’m working on the new scent and will post about it later this week.
