The weather has been a real roller coaster this May and now that it is almost over we can commit to finally planting our plants outside. It may seem like a lot of work to get a vegetable garden going, but when you can go out to your own back yard and grab a handful of basil, a quart of peas, or a bunch of kale the toil is worthy. My flowers are important as food for the soul, my large planters by the entrance of my home are bright and cheerful and always give me pause and a smile.
