Emerging Buttercups Update

Almost at the one-month mark with the garden. Here are some highlights:

The front beds, with their odd sun requirements and their dubious soil, seem ambivalent. So am I, at this point, but I think they will go well with some extra attention. The middle bed is in considerably more disarray than I would like, due to the failure of the balloon flower and the withering remains of the daffodils. I'll look for some things to add here. But hey, how about those violets?

The containers are happy, although a bit bedraggled by the rain. Although they don't go with my original color scheme, I was excited and mystified by these emerging buttercups.

And elsewhere: the first strawberry of the season. How long will it last?

NICE violets and buttercups. That strawberry looks precious.
Thanks for the heads up, I didn't know you were starting a garden blog!! I've been remiss in keeping up lately. I'll use being busy in my own garden as an excuse, which is true. Your container plants look really healthy :-)
