Freezing Temps in April

This is what the unusually cold temps we had in April did to some of the plants, the brown you see on this white lilac was new growth that was frozen. I was sick about my bleeding hearts which were about 8 inches tall and were frozen off to the ground, they have come back and are almost ready to bloom! I don't think the lilacs are putting on their usual wonderful show but they are blooming.

What's in bloom May 5th, 2007

It has been a very windy day here in Iowa today, I went plant shopping this morning which is always fun! I planted several herb plants in my new garden for the senses bed. So far I have rosemary, thyme, 3 sages, garlic chives, chives, oregano, coriander, 2 fennels, lavender, 2 parsleys, 2 basils, 2 scented leaf geraniums and probably some others that I have forgotten.

I took a few pictures today of things in bloom.
