I've been in love with gardening for a long time, though it was only recently that I actually got to do some real gardening. Last year was spent mostly landscaping and creating the flower beds. This year, I've already got some perennials popping up out of the ground and I even (kind of) know what I'm doing with my rose bushes! I'm planning on getting some milkweed growing for butterflies and a vegetable garden. It'll be a challenge, but I'm excited.

I live in Michigan, and we had a hell of a winter, so I'm looking forward to all the green. Big Grin

Yes! It just blows my mind how quickly some of these things are growing. I'm very excited for these bleeding hearts we got last year on sale in late summer. They're almost as big, if not bigger, than when we bought them.
