May Flowers at Mentor Public Library

These Virginia strawberries grow outside of our Read House. ( They're also called common or wild strawberries, but anyone who calls a flower "common" has no poetry in their heart.)

So we got plenty of April showers, and even some April snow; but it’s all worth it for those May flowers.

All kinds of wildflowers grow along the path from our Main Branch to the Read House. They’re tended by some awesome volunteers and Sue Fram—MPL’s Executive Assistant, Jill-of-Many-Trades, and resident green-thumb.

Sue even created a guide so patrons could see what flowers are blooming when. So the next time you’re walking that trail—and you should; it’s awfully pretty—consult the guide, so you don’t have to wonder if you’re looking at a daffodil or wood sorrel.

(Hint: if it blossoms in springtime, it’s a daffodil.)

Speaking of flowers, you can check out free flower (as well as vegetable, fruit and herb) seeds from our seed library.

Now it’s easier than ever to grow your own backyard garden.

The crab-apple trees are blossoming too.
