May showers

We had a dry April in Maine, but a wet May has produced lots of growth, and my garden is abundant with life.  As you can see below, the poppies and columbine have opened, as have the verbascum and sage.  Also open are chives, lupine, some flowering onions, geraniums, German iris, baptisia, some shrub roses, and a veronica. 

For some reason this morning, after a day or two of rain, the birds invaded my garden, and I saw a pair of goldfinches, a cardinal, a number of chickadees (or perhaps just the same one), and (below) a bluejay, perched upon a lovely birdhouse that my father-in-law bought for my daughter's birthday.
