I had a lovely Mothers Day weekend (always extend celebrations where possible!). See photo above of the roses I took my Mom. Didn’t get a picture of the dinner hubby cooked for his mother, our daugher & family, and me down in Peterspatch, but take my word that it was delicious!
Spring is in full flower in our neighborhood – other two pix are of mailbox plantings on my walking route. The wisteria is right across the street from us – the less agressive American variety, not what bloomed a few weeks earlier all over the trees and buildings of Richmond. I love the clementis – I tried it once, but it failed to flouish. Their roots need to be cool, but they need a lot of sun – not a combination I was able to provide in our forest hide away. So I pleased some of our neighbors are more successful!
Blackberry vines are also blooming – I’m keenly atuned to them, as I know the bounty that will follow, come June and July! Already approaching harvest time are the mulberries – yum, yum, yum. We found a few barely ripe ones last Saturday on Belle Isle – may have to go back next week. Memorial Day is my trigger for checking them, but looks like this year that may be a bit late. Also time for local strawberries. Life is good!
