Azaleas and Herbs

Our azaleas along the east side of the house are blooming, the ones out front are not. I hope we don't miss them completely! We are going to Italy for the next 2 1/2 weeks, and I'm hoping to see some wonderful spring gardents while we are there.

We have a lot of sunflowers growing...we'll thin these out and move the biggest ones to the spots where we really want them to grow.

They've even reseeded along the edge of the sidewalk in front of the azaleas!

This azalea didn't do so well this winter. After it's done blooming we'll cut it back.

This is one of our Hardy Mums from last fall. I finally stopped being lazy and actually put four of them in the ground!

I potted up the herbs: parsley, basil, thyme and cilantro.

This strawberry crawled out of the strawberry pot last summer...
