Spring Pots

Some moments from the beginning of May...

It has taken a long time to stay warm this year. After I did my garden work in the middle of April, we had another freezing cycle. I tried to protect the basil:

It didn't really work. So I planted a new one this past weekend.

I also got the pots planted up...
We've got them arranged differently this year. Put the urns on the step:

and the little pots on the porch:

excited to see how the Dahlia and Gerber do.

The hanging basket:

I have hung a little grass birdhouse on the basket, and going to see if I can get the birds to use that for their nests instead of building on the pot preventing us from watering!

I had to replace everything in the urn. Turns out, the grass and ivy died because it was completely root-bound. Here's the new attempt:

Of course, need a status for the other beds:
