The garden frustrates me. When the rain ends (was it March? I think it was March) suddenly I am the only thing keeping dozens of plants alive out there. We don't have sprinklers with timers (although we're working on adding drip irrigation with timers). Mostly I water with a watering can. I go out at naptime and tiptoe around, handing out starvation rations to the drought-stricken. Of course nothing really flourishes. Still, spring is the prettiest season in the garden.

This is from the beginning of May. The empty pots and the empty spots in the raised beds were planted with seeds in February and again in March. Nothing came up. Bugs, or something, ate the seeds as they sprouted, before they reached the surface of the soil. I keep replanting.

The bees love the lavender. So there's that, at least.
