I had just finished up most of the pile when another load appeared. No problem...I still have a lot of garden to go. Now it will be a race to see if the blooms or the weeds win!

Early arrivals...

i Florentina Always one of the first

I agree I would ask for a piece of the black helper, but that would be a little gross.

Glad "Merry Amigo" has bloomed for you. It is not going to bloom for me this year and it is in three "clumpette's". Bummer!

The recent cold, rainy weather has slowed down the bloom progress. Today it was warmer, so a few more made an appearance.
