weeding and more weeding

Good morning.
I'm late posting because I've been letting Craig sleep in, so I was weeding and trimming in the yard. I got Craig up early yesterday so we could get to Horrocks and get our plants before it got to busy. Horrocks is the largest garden center on our side of town, and so it always has a huge selection. I got tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, and 3 types of squash, and some annuals for the 3 pots we plant. I also checked out their perennial prices to make sure I'm pricing mine right. I want mine to be at least 1/2 the store price. That's why I sold out last year in 45 minutes.
We also picked up a turkey breast, some potatoes and corn on the cob for grilling. Then it was to Menards for crack filler and driveway sealer.
Then back home while Craig did bookwork and laundry, I cleaned off the driveway and entryway and did more weeding. We then trimmed up some shrubs and trees, and burned the cuttings with all the stuff that accumulated through the long winter.
And here's some things currently blooming....


Peonies, Lupine, and Ranuchulus.

Above a Thacium, and below a deciduous Azalea

And more weeding to do later.......
