My sister emailed me today to complain that I hadn’t posted anything on my blog since the 20th of April.  I told her that I was too busy playing in the gardent to blog.  Yes, it is that time of year again.  Garden obsession time!  I didn’t think it would ever get warm this spring.  When it finally did, I have been spending loads of my time outside with my hands in the dirt.

This time of year requires lots of hard work, but it is worth it.  Clearing away the debris from the winter, getting rid of the weeds that are already trying to take hold, moving plants around as I envision how it will look 2 months from now…all part of the fun of waking up my garden.  Over the last several days, I have been re-filling all my containers with a fresh crop of annuals.  I spent several lovely hours at the garden store on Tuesday morning, had coffee with a dear friend, then spent the afternoon in the garden….pretty much a perfect day! 

Here are some pictures of the early May bloomers in my garden:
