Short notations from a northern Vermont fellow who tends gardens for a living.

These baby blue Petunias (pictured above) have been cranking since May. Amazing! We threw in some Dusty Miller for contrast.
Petunias are native to Argentina and are really a tropical flower, which is why I wait til the end of May to plant them - I find they are stronger, more vibrant and last longer if I don't throw them in the ground too early.
