Do you garden?

I love this time of year.

It’s technically Spring, but the really rainy part is over (OK, this week looks a little rainy but still), and it’s not so hot that it’s unbearable to be outside. Especially in the mornings and the evenings, the weather in Fayetteville is absolutely perfect right now.

On Sunday, I spent the entire day taking advantage of this awesome weather by working on the landscaping in my front yard. I planted some Lily’s, some Hosta’s, some Begonia’s, and a few mystery plants that I just liked the looks of. It was a new garden so I had to dig out the grass with a shovel, and we lined it with red bricks, and then filled it in with the plants.

It was a ton of work, and my hands and back are still sore from all the digging, but there is something incredibly rewarding about spending the day in the sun, sweating, choosing your combination of plants, and getting your hands dirty in your own garden.

There were several people in my neighborhood working in the yard on Sunday, and the parking lot at Westwood Gardens on Wedington was packed, so I wondered, do Flyer readers garden? Do you grow herbs? Vegetables? Flowers? Strawberries?

I’d love to see what you guys are growing. If you have a particularly sweet garden, feel free to post a link to some pictures in the comments.
