Today was the day for me to go to the local garden center to buy some shrubs, flowers and tomato plants. As I was walking through the rows and rows of plants looking for what I was thinking about, I realized that one of my favorite things about gardening was feeling the sun on my back. After such a long, miserable winter and a cold and dry spring, it just feels so good to be warm.
Today the flowers got some attention.
It was windy as usual but warm enough for a tank top which felt wonderful. After I finished the front bed I went around to the back and gave the forget-me-nots a break from the weeds. They have mostly gone to seed now but there are still a few blossoms.
My vegetable garden gave me a surprise yesterday! Guess what this is!
This is a little tiny purple potato plant! I was so happy to see these coming up the other day. For a long time nothing seemed to be happening. It is rewarding to see things grow!
