Yes--flowers are coming back!! I am not sure why I am so excited. God sends them back every year. It really adds a lot of work to my load, but I love to be outside playing in the dirt. I have already started think about what to plant in my flower pots this year. I may need to be thinning out some of my perennials so if anyone is interested. (just a note: I did thin a lot out last year so I will not have tons!)
However, cousin Kelley gave me some new pods to plant and I just can't seem to stay away from the garden section at Lowe's or Wal-Mart. I really love that some of the Amish greenhouses now have more perennials! I thought I would try to get away from planting a lot of annuals but the annuals give you color almost all of the time, so you have to have them. I also noticed on my walk through the flower beds yesterday that the weeds are greening up too. :( Oh well you gotta take the good with the bad.
