We have had warm weather and a good amount of rain….the flowers are flourishing early in the season, and that makes me a happy girl.
Yesterday, when the guy at the greenhouse asked me if I was happy with my purchases as I was leaving, I told him choosing my flowers was one of my favourite days of the year. I planted my flowers today, and enjoyed every minute of digging my hands in the soil, so it’s one of my favourite weekends of the year! I kept to the plan and bought a lot of petunias, along with pansies, geraniums, dahlias, and a few others. (For anyone in Regina, I bought most of my flowers at Cedar Creek Gardens near the old Drive-In. It’s a family run greenhouse in their first operation. They were really friendly and helpful, and have big plans to expand so I hope everything goes well for them this year. They also have a booth at the Farmer’s Market.)
It’s debatable whether it it’s too early to plant, as it’s been a very chilly Spring (maybe by the end of the week there will actually be leaves on the trees!) but what the heck, what’s the worst that can happen?!
Just some flower pictures for a wintery Monday…
