The flowers are beautiful! I wish my stuff was that far along... I've got one cosmo bloom. We just had snow a few days ago, so I shouldn't complain.

I also liked your entry on lawns vs. food. I was just reading Pollan's Second Nature - he definitely gets on his soap box about suburbia's lawns and their excessiveness. I need to get more of my lawn up, but there's so much shade!

So beautiful, Greg, just so lovely.

Hi I just happen to come across you blog. I just love gardening and I also blog in Utah County. I will be checking back often.

Sorry I haven't responded until now. Been on vacation for last 12 days.

Daisy, isn't this weather just so weird this year? Snow in June! Crazy.

Thank-you Daisy and Kate for the kind comments. My garden is finally beginning to pay off.

Welcome April, good to hear from a fellow Utahn. It seems there aren't very many of us. I'm going to check out your blog now.
