May seems to go on forever!

And then there's August.  It must be the months with 31 days.  I vote we change the last day of these months to a new name...maybe in honor of a goddess, or lazy day, or whatever...anything to keep from the drudgery of all those days in one month.

 Some edible plants...well, if this ornamental cabbage wasn't quite so big!

 But a bit of crook neck squash will be lovely to pop into a pot soon!

 A typical garden swing...want to set a spell?


 Looking under the new bridge at the Broad River (Rocky Broad) as it flows into Lake Lure...from the old bridge now a garden!

The Garden of Weedin' includes an overgrown rowboat, of which you can just see the stern here.



I note that on the news yesterday these river photos looked very different, because of flash flooding from the rains we've had in Western North Carolina.  You can enjoy what it looked like on May 23, before the Alberto influence.

And here's a photo of the highway we drove through Chimney Rock on..taken May 30, 2018...near the Esmerelda Inn...a tree and mudslide. I only have videos of the river at flood stage, and can't figure out how to capture them from Facebook.
