Summer Comes to Beacon Hill Garden, in May

This is my 14th year in Seattle, and 2015 is easily the warmest. The Beacon Hill Garden is showing it, as it looks like the middle of June.

Hostas are sporting summer leaves, blueberries will be ripe soon, and Columbine are at to a bit past peak. Spring flowers are long gone, while roses have reached their full summer glory.

If the end of May is an indication, we’re in for a hot dry summer. That’s not good for the State of Washington, as the warm winter left us with next to no snow pack to replenish water supplies. The outdoor burn ban will likely start soon unless we get some late spring rains.

Blueberries look great, but netting will need to go over them or birds will feast on the ripe ones.

    We are wet in Iowa…wish I could send you some of our rain. But we seem oddly into an early summer too. Maples have dropped helicopters usually a June thing by mid May. cottonwood snow is flying early.
