Oh, it’s May already. Oh, well. I’m behind on posting pictures from April. And I’m posting pictures of the overgrowth of stuff in my yard because it’s small consolation that nice-looking stuff grows in my yard, even if I lack the energy/ability/know-how/resources to make it look neat and clean and presentable. But I live in a gritty, urban, neighborhood, so that’s ok. No, not really, because other folks have managed to figure out how to maintain a yard.
Anyway, I’m proudest of the runaway Scotch broom, because I actually bought and planted that when it was small, and it’s something I don’t see anywhere else. (Yeah, I’m sure it’s not a native plant; I should care about such things more than I do.) The Scotch broom blooms for just a couple of weeks in April. It emit a sweet fragrance, and it’s lovely…and then the blooms fall off, and it’s just a big broom from May until March.
