Welcome May

Now that May is here I hope we get more sunny days. Today was a mix of sun and cloud but the breeze was chilly. I wore a warm jacket when I went for my walk and was I ever glad I did.

I deadheaded more tulips. The lilacs are about done.  My Rugosa roses have big fat buds and a few have opened already. When they are all in full bloom the fragrance hits you when you open the front door.  The bad bad rabbit has been eating leaves off the one rosebush. It's one I planted last year and quite low so he can reach it easily so DH put more wire sort of around it. I wish that bunny would stick to eating grass. 
  A pair of Robins have made a nest quite close to the back door. On the weekend there will be a lot of coming and going and I hope that won't make them decide to abandon it.

                                           Happy first day of May!!
