The lead sentence is absolutely right, in the Pac NW, May is the first month to shake off the dreary doldrums of winter. Funny though, to read we should deadhead our rhodies that bloomed 'in the spring'. May is undeniably Spring in Western WA. Here in Port Townsend, on the Olympic Peninsula, our annual big event is the Rhody Festival, towards the end of May. I always get a bit nervous as Rhody weekend draws near and the bushes in every yard, park and roadway are still without color. Sure enough, right on schedule, they burst into bloom a few days before our town doubles in size with all the visitors. The peak blooming season only stretches a few weeks into June, but what splendor while it lasts!

I was wondering what size of lumber was used in the arbor that was in the photo featuring the tulips?
