It's mid-May. The long-awaited spring is here. The beginning of May was cold +5 C (40F), dark clouds with snow and hail. Then it became warmer, the leaves on roses began to grow, the sun appeared every day, the grass turned green again.

What makes me happy this spring? The greenhouse. I sowed parsley, coriander, celery, lettuce, everything grew, despite the first cold May days, because the greenhouse is warming up in the sun. Petunia and begonia seedlings, decorative bush cuttings are also there.
Nature finally came to it sense. The night/day temperature is +10 C/ +20 C (50/68 F) leaves began fast growing on gooseberry and currant bushes, lilac, elderberry, lonicera, dogwood and physocarpus.
Daffodils and scillas bloom beautifully, hyacinths and tulips started opening due to warm days. I hope to see all my tulips in full bloom soon.

I was worried about rhododendrons, their wintering. Now they are fine, evergreens and azaleas have many flower buds.
