they say april showers bring may flowers, right?

well, even though we didn’t have that many april showers, may was definitely a good month in our garden

and i have been trying to enjoy and cherish all of the garden’s splendor as much as i can because the heat is only rising and soon there will be nothing but green

the kurkuma (in the ginger family) that i thought had died managed to come back some how. i had seriously pulled the old stems off the dirt. i was so surprised!
