Spring Blooming Flowers 6-14-2013

This week I’ve truly felt that Spring has sprung! About time, since Summer is right around the corner.

While working out in the yard the past few days, I’ve actually sweated! It’s not that I don’t usually work hard enough to sweat, but it was hot enough to just sweat while standing still.

My hubby & I were picking up perennials from my favorite wholesale perennial nursery, Elite Growers for my Mother-in-Law’s front beds. Elite always puts the ‘current bloomers’ in the beds around the office, as ‘blooming plants sell better!’. They have an ingenious idea; They put empty one gallon pots in the ground and that way they can just drop in the bloomer & replace it when it’s done doin’ it’s thing. I could probably just drop by here weekly for my blooming blog, but that’s no fun… Um, ok, it IS fun, but it’s no challenge.
