First Spring Planting

Elaine had seeded some flower seed earlier but this afternoon we did our first planting. We put two white Geraniums, 2 red ones and 6 dark blue petunias in the old Flowerday "Butcher Kettle". Hopefully, these will be in full "bloom" on the 4th of July when the parade goes past our house. The plant to the left of the picture is a Holly bush which has beautiful green leaves all winter but very few red berries. We have been told that we need the second one if we expect it to produce "fruit". Among the seeds that Elaine planted earlier were some "Forget-Me-Nots" that were in an envelope from one of our U.S.Senatorial candidates. We don't plan to vote for him but give him some points for a very clever idea. The amount of money that has been spent on "slick cardboard" that we have received during the past couple weeks would have bought a lot of seed. We do recycle the cardboard but some of the candidates don't meet the criteria for it.
