May has to be my most favorite month, other than possibly October when the first chill turns the leaves into a stunning panorama of oranges, reds and yellows. In the foreground here is a sage plant from last year, blossoming for all its worth in one of the porch rail herb boxes. In the background are this year's raised beds. The broccoli looks ready to take off. We've been picking red leaf and butter lettuce leaves for several days now and the radishes are almost ready to harvest. Come on spring onions!
Green has to be my most favorite color, except if I'm wearing it... :) Lavender is a close second, but that early spring yellow is so smile-inducing!
