Garden In Progress: May

Garden Blessing

I would really love to blog about something other than gardening but that is all I seem to be doing lately. You'd think my muse would be jealous but she seems to like the fact that I am a captive audience to her when I am in the garden. While I am toiling away weeding or planting she likes to rattle on about all the other creative projects I can do when I am done. If only she would pipe down and grab a shovel, I might actually have the time and energy to complete those things too.

Needless to say I have been feeling a bit overwhelmed. So today I decided to take a little time to change my perspective; to pull back the lens and see the bigger picture, to zoom in on what I have accomplished rather than on all that needs to be done, to focus on the blooms instead of the weeds.

I hope you enjoy these photos of the work in progress that is my garden.
