I am almost ready to plant annuals.  Almost, but not quite.  First I pay attention to what the perennials are doing.
The clematis
It begins
To vine its way
Up the porch pillars.
The rhubarb accomplishes
Its first spring growth.
The elderberry is leggy
With leaf buds.
Perhaps it’s time to fill
The planters in front,
The planter in back.
I will give them
A few more days.
The weather carries hope
For planting.
I have had such hope
A few more days
Of clematis and rhubarb
I may be ready for pansies
In front
In back
I may be ready
For pansies.
