Garden Blogger's Muse Day--May

Can you believe it's May already?? I'm astonished at how much faster time seems to move every year. But that's not actually the subject of my musing. This post is kind of an add-on to Carol at May Dreams Garden, who feels May is the most exciting gardening month. I must agree that May is the most garden-centric month for me, mostly because it's the time when blooming really gets underway and the risk of frost here in northern Illinois is reliably past. As a result, May is the time to weed vigorously, plant copiously, and enjoy unabashedly.

I will be picking up two large plant orders from the Wild Ones this month and trying to squeeze in some trips to local plant sales, and I also need to plant my containers, transplant my seedlings, and add new mulch. I feel like I'm already lagging behind! But we're really underway with the gardening season now; I hope you're as excited about it as I am! For more musing, visit Carolyn at Sweet Home and Garden Chicago.

I agree--May is definitely the real start of gardening season here in Illinois. So much to do...if only it would stop raining! Good luck with all your projects, and may the sun shine soon so that the gardening can begin!

I am so far behind on planting because the soil is no longer workable. It was in March, but with the near constant rains, it's turned into a mucky mess.
The Wild Ones is such a great group. I'm lucky that I don't need to go all the way out to McHenry County, as I've got Citizens for Conservation right here. Their native plant sale is tomorrow. I'm so excited.

Just thought I'd say that I love words vigorously, copiously and unabashedly....they describe the month of May so perfectly.
