My Yard is Blooming

What a fantastic holiday weekend. I spent two full days working in the garden. I went to the nursery on Friday night after work and picked up my canna plants. I then worked on the various pots (cleaning them out and turning the soil) and planted the petunias and snapdragons that I had purchased the weekend prior. I really do hate weeds but that is an evil of the garden. I hope to take more general garden picks when things begin to take shape. Right now, here are some flower pics.
