I love this time of year! It always seems that on May 1st it is the most beautiful time. Most of the leaves are out, flowers are peeking their heads out, and the grass is definitely greener. Ahhh...Spring. I cannot wait to plant next weekend. My Gram always said to wait for Mother's Day weekend to plant. Native Americans say wait until the buds on trees are the size of a squirrel's ear. With last weekend being above normal with temperates everything seemed to accelerate. Now I have to decide what I want to plant. The choices! I love flowers that are unique and vibrant. However, since we have mostly shade around our house, Impatiens are must. But what colors? I love the pinks and purples, but this year I may go with a fun mix. I am sure I will change my mind when I go to the nursery. I am like a kid in the candy store when I go there. "I want that, I want that..." Poor Brian, Poor bank account.
