Spring has Sprung…?

Finally things are starting to look a little more seasonal around here.  The local supermarket  called for their first hanging basket order of the year.  Our plants have been looking ready to go for a couple of weeks now.  Sounds good, but it’s not really.  The plants get too big and they are crammed together and mold starts to grow where there is no air circulation.  We have been cutting the plants back since before Easter and they just keep filling in.  We have had a bit of a battle against  black winged gnats as well.   But, now with warmer weather ahead of us and plants  starting to move, things will be getting easier.  There are 30 fewer baskets to water.  That’s a plus anyways.

I’ve noticed the regular wild flowers blooming.  This one is colts foot I believe.

Trout Lily.  Lovely flower, less lovely name.

Went for a walk the other day with a girl on a horse.
