My petunias are having a growth spurt too! I didn't plant them as early this year, and not as many since the JB seem to love them. I'll be having more lemongrass, parsley and basil as potted plants this year.

I've got Nigella and Coneflowers started in trays, and lots of Marigold, Rudbeckia, Zinnia, and Cosmos seed ready to go in...when the torrent of rain is over. ...and lo and behold, my big white Iris is back with several more of its family. Just now opening up. The usual blue and purple standard irises, as well as the white and purple Japanese are about to bust, too.

We're finally getting the weather to calm down a bit, we even had some snow last week but it quickly melted. I'm planning on growing a lot of flowers this year, some old favorites and a few new. I usually do try to get in as many flowers I can but I probably will try tucking some into the vegetable beds too. I am fortunate that I get a lot of bees into my yard so want to offer as many food sources to them as possible.
