May has had beautiful weather that makes me want to stay outside with my flowers. I love even the green plants that don't bloom, too--like Maidenhair fern, hostas and herbs. Hydrangeas are looking good, with more on the way. Those little begonias are putting on a show, and the white Diamond Frost just gets fuller every day. A friend brought me blueberries.

Zoo news--our giraffes are here! Sue Ellen and her daughter Alberta are settling into their new giraffe barn. We can even see them from Hardy Street (if we're careful) when they are in their yard. What a happy addition to Hattiesburg. They have been on display since the first of May, and the people are flocking in to enjoy them.
I'm so proud of daughter Linda for her quilting accomplishments. To commemorate her retirement from USM Libraries, she made a "bookcase" wall quilt to hang in her office the last month before she retires on June 30.
