And Creeping Charlie has joined the Dandelions in producing unwanted blossoms.

I'm not certain of the species of all of these. Some have tags lost to time. Others, like the anemone, are pass-along plants. For those, I am making an educated guess.

* Plants marked with an asterisk bloomed for the first time since the previous Sunday Survey.

Hi Peter
It has taken me all day, but had to come over today (5/24) and wish you a happy, happy birthday! Hope you had a great day. I'll be back later and read your recent posts - I've been very bad with the blogging lately. Isn't it great to have things in the gardens again? My tulips have been fabulous this year. Best wishes for the coming year. Your TC blogger buddy, Kris

Thanks, Kris!

It's okay to let your blog go fallow. It will be ready when you are ready to get back to it. And unlike a garden, you don't have to worry about it becoming overgrown if left untended.
