One of the great joys of spring is planting flowers. Spring is later here in Iowa than almost everywhere else in the world, but at last the annuals are ready to be planted. So I stopped by the garden center today just to see what was available, and came home with all this. Most of them will be planted by the sign in front of the studio. This year, because it was a long, cold winter, and a whole year of sadness and loss, I felt the need for color in my gray life, so the flowers will be bright and splashy with no particular color scheme.
This is the location where they will be planted. Pathetic, isn't it? Sort of like a neglected pet. But that is what happens during a long Midwest winter. In a day or two, if this rain ever lets up for a little while, I will show you how good it can look.
In the meantime, Happy Spring!
