Lily of the Valley.

Lilies DeValle.

English or Spanish, May is here.

Mayo e aqui.

Green as an emerald.

Thanks to the mighty rain.

Such power to paint an entire county.

And in every shade of green at that.

The official May flower is blooming too.

As are a plethora of others.

May is not full of promise.

It IS the promise.

Of new life.

And rebirth.

The joyful Gaillardia.

And perky Spiderwort.

The hawk.

The doves.



And Inca.

The glimpse of a Summer Tanager.





And the all-time favorite: Hummingbirds.

Lots and lots and lots of hummingbirds.

Hinckley’s has hummingbird feeders.

And Mason Feed Store has food for almost every kind of bird.

You can get plants to attract all those birds (and butterflies too) at Mason Garden Market or The Green House.

Esmeralda is one.

A perfect plant for May.

Yellow flowers.

Emerald green leaves.

Hardy and happy.

A real stunner.

So it’s true.

April showers do bring May flowers.

May your garden runneth over.

That’s Mason.
