How does your garden grow?

We are finally getting some bettter weather and the garden is starting to catch up.  Things that normally bloom in May are in full blossom now.   One of my lilac bushes is planted under my window, put there on purpose, and the scent of lilacs and sweet iris has been drifing into our bedroom at night.  Only sweet dreams can come from falling asleep kissed by a sweetly scented night breeze.  This has to be my favorite time of the year.  The roses are just starting to bloom, and the first peony opened today.  There is such a happy hum in the garden as the bees wander from blossom to blossom.  It brings to mind a poem I memorized in high school:

To make a prairie takes a clover and one bee,
one clover and a bee,
and revery,
Revery alone will do, if bees are few.      - Emily Dickinson

Here are a few shots of spring in my garden.

I appologize for the problems with the spinning video in the last post.  I didn't insert it correctly into the blog so you couldn't access it.  I have fixed the problem and you should be able to go back and watch it now.  Enjoy!
