each spring they come back
and throw their energies
into their sweet garden beds

What a great photo! Nothing better than flower markets!It seems that every city and many countries I've visited has them, and they're all a treat for the eyes (and the gardeners, too!).

Color, color, color. I've got lots of weeding to do. I don't know what was going on in those beds all winter long. MB

How sweet it is! And soon beauty and sustenance shall crop up!

Gorgeous photos, Brattcat! Makes me almost want to move to Vermont. The key word there is "almost." ;-)

I so admire the people who have a talent for this.

Beautiful stuff. I like to go shopping for plants to eat and plant. I don't have room left for them but some volunteer tomatoes come up each year.

I lose my mind every time I get to the flower market in May.

What a paradise! I really like the vignetting around the beautiful young gardener. Beautifully captured.

Great looking garden center.

Strange. This is what our garden stores look like in November. Those plants wouldn't last a week in our heat this time of year.

Love the progression of words and pics, ending w/the young girl and the young plants: all that possibility. . .

All shots are a feast for the eyes but the bottom one is just beautiful!

I like the lovely portrait and the rich garden beds. I was just checking my succulents this afternoon, but with this strange weather I am not sure what to do...
