Mother's Day and Memorial Day are profitable days at the local garden shops. I missed both deadlines to purchase and plant flowers; in fact, I just got the job done two days ago! Sometimes it doesn't pay to get too eager to plant, as the temps dip, the winds blow, and the new blooms take a beating. But I am now in the safe zone, and my pots of flowers should do fine. Oh, it's so GREAT to have some pretty petunias in the yard!!
