Yesterday my daughter took me flower shopping to buy plants to fill my deck pots with summer flowers. This was part of my Mothers' Day gift--she had also given me a lovely bouquet of cut flowers. I do love flowers!

I have a lot of clean up to do to get the deck in shape from the winter's dirt, dust, and bird contributions. I need to shop for a few pots to replace some old pots that are cracking. I need to dig out the top few inches of soil from the pots and put in some fresh soil. Then I'll be ready to plant. In the meantime, it gives me a thrill of satisfaction just to look out to the deck and see the little petunias waiting for their new home.

So, I'd better get busy. They need out of those tiny containers!


  1. You got me excited...maybe I can make time to plant a flower or two this week-end as well.
