I’ve been like a long-tailed cat in a room full of rockers.
It’s the end of the school year for my kids, and all that entails. The Diva just graduated from high school yesterday. There’s been prom, and a whole host of writing projects.
Plus, I’ve been toiling in the garden of delight. Everything about late May is delightful from the buzzing insects to the warmer weather. I never thought I’d be so glad to see the blazing sun, but it was a very cold spring with little rain. Both were ended this week with rain and then sunnier skies just in time for Baccalaureate and graduation.
Tomorrow, I go with my daughter for her orientation at university. She asked me to go, and I’m surprised and gladdened. She isn’t quite ready to let me go yet, and I’m grateful, because if she did so soon, I’m afraid I’d fall. She is my second child, but my first baby, and the parting is such sweet sorrow.
Two more chicks still in the nest make it a bit easier, but still . . . .
The garden is beautiful, but I’m not getting all of the vegetables in because I’ve been so busy this May. It reminds me of when all of my kids played sports simultaneously, and I was hot footing it from place to place. I hope you’ll forgive me and check out these other pieces I’ve written here and there.

It’s not too soon to deadhead on the Lowe’s LCI Team blog. If you want to read more, just click on my name in the drop down menu on the right side of the blog.
If that’s not enough writing to never want to read me again, I also have an article in Oklahoma Gardener magazine this month on texture and color in the shade garden.
I hope spring is treating all of you well, and I wish I could walk your gardens with you, or you could come visit. I finally got all the plants planted. Now, it’s time to mulch.
