Late May garden beds. More photos and comments to be added
More blooms appear during mid May. New flowers and growth continues to march along despite the cool wet weather we’ve had.
We seem to have a very dramatic seasonal change here in Southern Ontario from cold to warm. There doesn’t seem to be a gradual change in temperature with most days warming a bit. Instead a dramatic change seems to occur over the span of a week. The timing of the change varies from year to year. I recall several years when the warm weather would start in early May. This year it was late. This year we jumped from cool days with highs of 12 C or lower right to warm temperatures of 20+ C in the span of a few days. There seem to be very few days with highs around the calculated average in the mid teens. Until this week (May 18 – 23) we had to dress for cold weather most evenings on our daily walk. This week it finally warmed up and it will stay warm, we hope, until almost October.
