As the homage to Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood suggests; my patio garden is exploding in new flower growth. My little strawberry plants are finally setting their first fruits and my experimental onion has set her first flower.

Of course, it is not all new growth which keeps my garden being the place I retreat to and enjoy a nice rest after a long bike ride. Many of my garden’s long-time favorites are also keeping busy trying to keep up with the upstart flower buds! My little daisies are putting on a magnificent show and continue to add a wonderful contrast to the stark whiteness of the snowflake’s delicate flowers. My newest addition; Dahlia v. Mystic Haze, continues to flower profusely, showering my yard in her deep crimson blossoms and attracting hummingbirds, bees, and butterflies.
