We are having a garden wedding July 4th and we would like to fill our back yard with blooming flowers. What can we plant around the yard for a blooming show at that time?

Your last spring frost date is coming right up (between April 30 and May 10), so that gives you just about 8 weeks to get plants to full bloom. You can start fast-growing annual flowers indoors under lights, such as zinnias, cosmos, nasturtums, and poppies, but 10 weeks is a pretty narrow window of growth. I'd play it safe and purchase bedding plants as a backup. May your wedding be resplendent with blooms!
