Spring seemingly continues…

All this fabulous rain has extended spring, or so it seems: wildflowers continue their colorful display, frogs are loud at night, and some garden plants are re-flowering (Philadelphus) or continuing like Fairy’s Fishing Rods (Dierama, one of my favourite perennials, above). Heck, we’re still picking peas (nibbling them, few reach the kitchen). Soon summer’s heat will sear the green but just now I am loving the profusion of little blooms, flitting birds and even the fleeting spring verdure of my tiny round lawn.
