Flowers still in bud are not listed, at least one open flower is required to make the list. It's getting to be a great time to sit on the garden bench and admire the garden. Even though the list of things to do in the garden is long, sitting on the bench is a must!

That is quite a list! I bet it's beautiful. I must get a bench when I am done making all my beds so I can place it right in the middle of them and sit and admire - you've convinced me.
