The weather for this weekend is suppose to be overcast with a possibility of rain. A low contrast day is always perfect lighting for photos of the RainyDayGarden. The timing couldn't have been better as the May blooms are just starting to peak.
Many of the Spring tulips have been blooming for about a week already. The Japonicas have just started to flower and should be in full glory by mid-May. The Tiger Lilies and iries will follow in early June.
Our approach is to select plants which require minimal watering and no special care (meaning: no fertilizing, weeding, or pest control). With this approach, not only is the workload on our interns lighter, our environmental footprint of maintaining the garden is, too.
One advantage of having a garden is the joy of seeing our efforts grow with each passing year. We have quite a few projects planned for 2009. Bookmark the RainyDayGarden section and check back periodically and see what's new. [Permalink]- RainyDayGarden May Blooms
