Happy (Gardening) Friday!

How are you enjoying your spring garden? Are you out there planting vegetable or perennials? Have you picked out a new shrub cultivar? Are you still at the garden center making a decision? Are you sorry the rains have slowed down?

Strawberry pot in early April
I have been out of town for a couple of days, and everything has grown while I have been away. Take, for example, my strawberry pot. Full of strawberries on the sides and cilantro on the top, I have been picking almost daily to keep up. My fall pansies are pretty much gone (shucks, I have to choose something else for those pots!), but my geranium, a hold-over from last year, is going gangbusters.
This pansy was a volunteer and its cheery face pairs well with Carex 'Evergold'
I must say, I am looking forward to spending the entire weekend in the garden. There are tomatoes and peppers begging to be in the soil, and many seeds to sow. I must check on those zinnias I transplanted early in the week. Oh, and I have to find something else to go in those pansy pots!

Hope you have as much fun in the garden as I will!
