My granddaughter has been visiting...
We did a little Garden Decorating.

Now, where would YOU put a little garden stool?

Maybe here?
Again, Happy May Day!

Rose said...

What a cutie! Looks like she had a great time gardening with Grandma. Happy May Day to you, too, Shady!

Happy May Day to you. :)

Hiya Kathy,

Ah, is the visit over already?
Always hard when they leave, isn't it.
Your climate has gone from one extreme to another in a very short time: my irises are still budless. But then, the ants are full out and troublesome already, about two months ahead of their time.
Such a sweet girl sitting on such inviting decking.
Glad the weather was accommodating for the visit.

A belated Happy May Day to you too. A little one around always makes for a happy day.

Kate said...

Happy May Day to you, too, Shady. What cute pics. :) It would be hard to decide where to put that garden stool -- so many pretty spots to choose from.

Looks like everything is blooming good at your place. You're way ahead of me! Don't ya love having your Grandbabies for a visit? I know they hate us calling them babies! LOL

Hocking Hills Gardener said...

LOL! It takes time to find just the right spot for a little garden stool.
Your irises are just gorgeous.

Your granddaughter is so cute! Looks like she found the perfect spot for the stool.
Your May Day seemed to have been filled with lots of flowers! I love the white iris.

Shady Gardener said...

I'm sorry I'm not going to address each one of you - my blogging buddies! However, I hope YOU enjoyed a great weekend, too.

The stool didn't stay in that location more than a few minutes... but that's okay! ha!

It was a fun weekend- lots of activity!

The weather was wonderful this weekend. It rained this afternoon (a good downpour), but not long-lived. It has made everything seem greener, though!

Northern Shade said...

The perfect spot? Why, right next to Grandma. :)

It looks like the sunshine is doing its job, Every thing is growing so lush under your trees. I love the mixture of large leaves and delicate ferns. Your white iris are packing lots of flowers.

Rebecca said...

I've been trying to figure out where to put my garden stool, too! Precious post!

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Northern! Great idea! :-) It seemed that we'd been waiting "forever" for Spring, didn't it?

Rebecca, You just can't keep things in the same places ALL the time! ha. thanks for your visit.

Belated May Day greetings to you Shady :)

What fun your lovely little granddaughter was having, I love how they are so fascinated and contented with such simple pleasures

Love the Pulmonaria on your header too, every year at this time I see it on blogs and think I must get some...every year I forget :( maybe this time!

Hi Shady~~ Your granddaughter is adorable. What a lucky little girl to have visit grandma's house with such beautiful surroundings.

And just look at that clump of irises blooming away! Woozers.

Shady Gardener said...

Hi Shy Songbird. Thanks for leaving your comments. :-) You really would love pulmonaria. There are many varieties available!

Hi Grace, Thanks! We had such a nice few days. :-) Grace, things are just blooming away... it's wonderful, but it reminds me more of June! Ha?
