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 !)

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