Courtyard Blossoms: May

Posted on May 30, 2010 by

A glorious early spring in April has the garden blooming so early this year. Some cold mid-month temperatures threatened to freeze tender buds, but all the garden weathered the dip. And luckily I didn’t fall prey to early planting enthusiasm and put my annuals out before the mid-May last frost date, though it was tempting.

Mackinac Island inspired our love of all things bed & breakfast, and the red geraniums and white rockers on our front porch pay tribute to the Grand Hotel’s influence. I just need to add “sky blue” paint to our porch ceiling… But I wonder what will they do at the Lilac Festival if the blooms come early there?
