It hasn’t stopped raining here all today today, and it’s making the house cold.

It’s also making my flowers grow which is a much more positive thing. Most of the perennials I put in last year seem to be coming back. I still can’t find my hostas though. Maybe it’s too early for them, but I lost some last year, so I’m not so sure about the “hostas grow well in shade” concept. Maybe this year they will perk up.

I’m not sure but I think my clematis came back. This is really unexpected as it did next to nothing last year – very little growth and no flowers to speak of. However, I was out there last weekend and it looks like something is growing where it was planted last year. I just can’t remember if I threw a bulb in the same spot last year, but it doesn’t look like a bulb plant so it’s clematis as far as I’m concerned. I just went looking on Google images for “clematis growth” and the pictures I saw looked like my plant so I may have pretty purple flowers on my trellis this year! Hooray!

I never thought I’d be into gardening when I was growing up. I used to help my mom water plants when I was a kid, but I always found it boring. Now, I look forward to every bloom. Maybe that’s because it’s *my* garden in *my* house.

Just a few more weeks till I can fill in the rest of the garden with more annuals, and get my herb and tomato garden started! Flowers are pretty but plants you can eat are even better!
