A Shelf Full of Pansies
The gardening bug has bit me! We have had a few warm days, and now I cannot wait to get outside to start planting.
Today, I visited the garden center for the first time this spring. I strolled through rows and rows and rows of early spring flowers. I browsed shelves and shelves of new fandangled growing supplies.
My last three gardening seasons have been utter failures. I have major plans for something different this year!
I am planning a patio garden for my vegetables. The yard/ lawn garden is going to be devoted only to flowers.
Of course, I could not leave the garden center without something. Pansies…. In all my years of plantings, I have never tried to grow pansies. These are my new addition to the garden this year.
Too bad it calls for snow this weekend.
But come next Wednesday… the nights will be warmer again… Pansies will breathe a beginning of spring to my backyard.
