The month of May is my favorite month. It's been that way for many years, from my times of living in Kansas, to Arkansas, and, finally, to upstate New York.
When I lived in Kansas and Arkansas, it was also tornado season, but that didn't matter.
I love the rush of flowers, one after the other. This May has been wet, and also cold. The cold is actually in the flowers' favor, making them last loner.
Here are my memories of May, tracked by these flowers I've seen on various exercise walks.
Cherry blossoms on May 1 (most of these pictures were taken on the West Side of Binghamton, New York).
More tulips (my house).
My red columbine.
By May 21, the azaleas were in full bloom.
May ends with variegated weigela.
We've had so much rain. It makes me wonder - what will June bring?
What's blooming where you live?
