Green and growing
One bright spot in the grayness that is May in Oregon: honeysuckle! I planted it a few years ago and it is loving the old fence on the west side of the backyard. Some day I hope it covers the whole thing. And since we've had such a rainy spring...
...the lemon balm is growing as high as a preschooler's eye. It may not be much more than a weed, but have you ever seen such a lush and beautifully green weed? It can take over the ledge in the side yard for all I care - eye of the beholder, and all that. Owen and Auntie have even made tea with it. So it's pretty and science project worthy. That makes it a keeper in my book. Easy gardening 101.
