Block of the Month - May

The last day of May will come early in the morning so I’m jumping the gun and posting my Hop-to-It Block for May.
From my Garden---- this is the block to remind me of my Blueberry Bushes. When I pulled the wool pieces I kept grabbing a red and a pink… But I kept putting them back….It’s about the blueberries.

My new blueberry plants added to the garden.

The difference one month can make. My garden is planted. A row of perennials has been added. I still have to gather stones to line the edges.

The front flower bed is almost full of impatients . Maybe tomorrow evening after work it will be completed.

The Bleeding hearts seem to tell me that winter has been put on hold for a while.

I found this old chair at a junk store--- five bucks. It’s going to hold a basket a flowers real soon.

How pretty everything looks in your garden! That chair will be a nice addition, too. The promise of Spring is being fulfilled, isn't it! I like your garden block and wish you great success with your blueberries.

We were doing the same things! Impatients-check!, cleaning out the beds and realigning the rocks-check! Love your blueberry block and your chair. I just picked up a junky table at a yard sale to hold my pots. I love watching old furniture decay in the yard.

Such a lovely garden and your blocks is so sweet.
We have 9 blueberry plants that are full this year but we really need some rain because I noticed some were shriveling up.
Great idea for the chair.

Blueberries for sure. Good color choice for your flowers. I have never picked blueberries. We had lots of different berries in the garden when I grew up in Ohio but never blueberries.
