A May to Remember

What a delight the past month has been here in Ann Arbor! Lots of sunny days with enough rain to keep the gardens green and growing, cool nights and pleasant days, perfect weather, in short, for being outdoors planting, weeding, pruning, staking…as well as enjoying the scents and beauty of the iris, peonies, lilacs and early roses! It has been, as always, a delight to see the sprouts of dahlias come poking above ground, spreading their eager leaves to take in the sunshine, and to anticipate the blossoms that will come later in the summer. While some bulbs like rain lilies and surprise lilies may not yet have made an appearance, we hope your garden is off to a great start as well! If you’ve encountered difficulties, do let us know so we can try to discern what may have gone wrong.
