Belated Happy May Day !!

Ok -- so pretend these tulips are in a pretty basket on your doorstep -- a May Day surprise from me !!(oh, and pretend that ground around the tulips doesn't look quite so parched....) Happy (belated) May Day ! Yesterday I was so busy blabbing about my new carpet and how I wish it was a magic flying carpet that I completely forgot it was May Day until I was surfing other blogs and came across cherry hill cottage --- isn't that a sweet May Day basket? Anyhow, I had to take a picture of my flowers before the deer finish them off as their midnight snack - (as you can see, we're just getting our garden started -- we just built this house 2 and a half years ago, and just got the brick sidewalk in, the grass planted, and the spring bulbs planted last summer and fall -- so still quite a bit to do this summer) . Ok , it's a nice day and I have some purple Coneflowers to plant (compliments of my personal gardener -- aka George/ my dad -- who raises tons of flowers and veggies that he starts from seed in my sisters' and my old bedroom -- has zillions of little seedlings spread out all over our old homework desk -- my mother refers to it as "the farm") . OK -- enough blabbing -- I better go plant those Coneflowers before they whither and die sitting in their containers on my side porch -- (currently, they're looking beautifully healthy --that's because George just delivered them to me on Monday night -- so, at least if I get them in the ground SOON and then they whither and die --- at least I know it's not because I forgot to plant them as directed by George. He's determined to make an at least mediocre gardener out of me yet !)

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

Your flower bed is pretty. I wish that I had more of a green thumb like George.
