i’ve got sunshine (on a cloudy day)

I ‘VE GOT SUNSHINE, though it’s cold outside, and hardly like the month of May. The golden-leaved plants that are a backbone of the garden are seeing me through. Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Crippsii’ cascades down onto a little Chinese stone bench that has an emerging carpet of gold in Lysimachia nummularia ‘Aurea’ beneath its feet. Investment strategy: Gold is always a good buy. (And it really sparkles if you give the photo a click.)

    I love, love, love nummularia. It brightens up any garden and trails beautifully in a pot. That bench… there must be a story to that bench..

    Welcome! Glad to know that you agree with my investment philosophy.
    Love the rhyme…sort of like the corn is knee-high by the Fourth of July. Yes, good to have the moisture (and also my golden plants).

    A wet cold May makes a barnful of hay.

    We can use it to cover stuff next fall!
