We’ve had a wet, cool spring in southeast Michigan. But my pink Columbines didn’t seem to mind.
They’ve been blooming for the past three weeks.
Somehow the delicate pink flowers withstood the downpours of rain and strong winds this month’s storms brought to southeast Michigan.
The columbines are one of the few flowers in bloom in my garden this week, while the rose buds are still forming and my cleomes, asters, and snapdragons have yet to form any buds.
For me, it sure seemed like we had one of the wettest months of May.
But my memory must be failing me.
According to the Detroit Free Press article about raining 21 out of 28 days in May, metro Detroit had less than half the precipitation as one year ago, in May 2018.
Tell that to my waterlogged lawn, as I make squish-squish sounds every time I walk on it.
How about you?
How are your spring flowers doing? What’s in bloom in your garden today?
