I will be away from my computer for the rest of this week, I am leaving you with this post of our garden over the last few weeks during themonth of May, to enjoy both here and on Flickr.com
Our Garden in May
During May our garden has suffered this year from the excessive amount of rain we have had. As the neighbours kept saying the garden was 'bagnato' 'wet' although you would not think it had suffered from an excessive amount of water as it was not long after the rains stopped that we had to start watering.
The cherries and strawberries have both suffered from lack of sun, the former are now beginning to ripen and as we were told last year that we were picking them too early, are hopefully it is not going to be too much longer before we harvest them. So no cherry photos yet and not much to show in the way of strawberries either.
The roses have bloomed and provided most of the colour for May apart from various white flowering shrubs, white lilies and white irises.
The orto - vegetable garden has not been very good either. In fact we lost plants due to them drowning! Our neighbours lost vast quantities of plants but we got off fairly lightly just having to replace a few tomato, pepper and aubergine plants as we do not plant in such large quantities. We also lost all our potatoes, they have just rotted in the ground.
Here are a few of my favourites photographs from the month of May for you to enjoy.
