The recent bounty of wonderful rain was terrific. The garden is washed. The soil is soft. While sitting on the patio and enjoying watching the rain come down, I noticed the plump wisteria petals fall with the rain. There's still plenty hanging from the pergola above. The bumblebees get busy between rain storms making the area sound like a botanical helipad. The hummingbird feeder is a hugely popular stop for migrating nectar suckers. In the meantime, the perfumed confetti continues to fall like a springtime ticker tape parade. It's pretty great to enjoy this. Summertime and swamp pants will be here before long; but until then the garden is very sweet.
