Monthly Reflections

Hello, May!

It’s May Day, and what a better way to greet it than with a purple petunia!

Here in the desert, May moves us from spring to summer. We anticipate we’ll see 100 degrees before the end of the month. Pansies will fade, morning glories will bloom, and I’ll head to the nursery to pick up the early summer flowers.

In June, before the summer rains come, the garden enters summer dormancy, when it’s too hot and dry for much of anything to grow. This makes us treasure May’s lingering flowers even more.
