I was out planting my garlic this morning, and I found an interesting surprise mixed among my Lincoln peas.  Perfectly purple pea flowers.  I can't wait to see what develops.

My Meyer's Lemon produced it's first three lemons.  To me they taste like a slightly sweeter, more tart lemon.  I also purchased a lime last year.  That is the pathetic twig sticking out of the container on the right.  It's never looked healthy from the day it arrived at my door.  
Due to the below freezing temperatures last week, I took that as my opportunity to bring in the last few roses.  Abraham Darby is the lighter rose on the left.  Jubilee Celebration is the darker pink flower on the right.  Both have a wonderful, strong fragrance.  Love them!
