May is our most spectacular month. In fast succession, irises, peonies and roses are opening their buds. We had some nice rain and it will get warm, so be ready for the show! Some migratory birds are stopping by, too. I saw a common yellowthroat this morning.

Every day, something new is coming up now. Who can should visit this month!
The best time to be in the garden, by the way, is in the evening and on weekends. There is a rather noisy construction site right next door, lest we forget that our little oasis is in the middle of New York City.
