Good start for 2015

It is now Victoria Day and the garden and flowers are all in.  Last week I picked up a lot of plants for the wife for mothers day.  Upside is the Strawberries survived the winter.  I didn't expect that as it was in a hanging planter, but, I put it under the tarp with the other planters and covered with over 1 meter of snow for most of the winter.  Right now it is flowering and I hope to get at least a dozen berries from the plant.  This year we didn't have a colour theme, but, picked as many different colours as possible.  Jane likes it as the back yard is a riot of colours.

I picked out a Roma tomato this year and I hope it will produce better than the cherry tomatoes from last year.
