I always find it difficult to wait until after Memorial Day to plant my annuals and vegetables. In terms of this year, for the most part I was able to resist until today, May 16th, which isn't too bad. My boyfriend and I were out mulching in the morning and then he left to go help his dad with something. I decided this would be a good time for me to run down the street to the local farmer's market and buy some flowers. I told him I was just going to get some white wave petunias for one of the beds. And I came back with this:
I also texted him while I was there because I couldn't decide and wanted his opinion. He didn't reply, so it's partly his fault too, right? :) I did get the white petunias, but I also got pink ones, purple/pink ones, white geraniums, yellow marigolds, and some mix snapdragons (yellow and pink/purple). I am very excited. Now if I can only figure out how to best arrange them and manage to keep them alive all summer.
