Violets are everywhere
We moved the forsythia bush away from the patio and over with the other smallish trees - crabapple and plum. By the way, I learned in a garden book by Anne Raver that it is named after William Forsyth who is said to have introduced the plant to England from China. And that it should be pronounced - for sigh thia not - for sith ia.
We were so pleased there were any flowers at all because Lucy thought we hired her to prune it, and pulled off most of the branches.
One of the sweet smelling plum trees has blossomed.
May is just so wonderful! There should be some more flowers by the end of the month.
