False Dragonhead, Solomon Seal, and Coreopsis that I added to the peony garden last year.
The aster is still hidden among the weeds.
Writing every day in March for SOL provided a structure and discipline that I came to rely on. In April, I decided to carry on that structure by reading and recording a poem and a few notes about it each day. Then all of a sudden it was May, and I needed something else.
A few years ago I started a garden journal where I could record plants I added, bloom times, sketches, activities of the birds, etc. As I looked through the journal to begin my garden planning this spring, the light bulb went off. For May, I could record something every day about what I noticed, accomplished, or wondered about related to the garden. Above you will see my entry for today. There is always so much to do and notice in the garden I may have to keep it up all summer!
