Happy May Day to you!
To celebrate the first day of May I'm sharing my favorite part of my spring garden.
This corner of our garden is always the first to show signs that spring has arrived. My daughters gave me this Bleeding Heart, so of course it's my favorite flower in the garden.
These are our very first blossoms from our new little Eastern Redbud Tree we planted last summer.
This corner has always been pink and white in the spring.
Next to the Redbud Tree and the Bleeding Heart is a lilac tree.
For years this lilac has been struggling under the shade of our big locust tree.
But since we had that tree cut down last year, it's happily basking in the sun it needs and putting out lots of new limbs.
I never wanted to rob it of its few blooms in years past, but this year there's more than enough to cut and bring indoors.
As I sit here writing this post in my studio, I'm surrounded by the sweet scent of lilacs.
Tucked into a mason jar high up on a shelf with the birds.
Nothing says May Day like lilacs!
I'm so happy to announce that my good friend Sharon is hosting her Elizabeth & Company Garden Parties again this year. I'm heading over there right now, and I sure hope you'll join me!
Happy May Day!
Don't stop partying! This week I'm also over at
