Happy Spring!

Flora Fresco.jpg

Yes, I know the weather in much of the country isn't quite cooperating yet, but I love this fresco and didn't want to wait any longer. Plus, Steve-O has already started garden-blogging and I feel I'm slipping behind.

This weekend, I plan to undertake my first project of the year, which will be to lattice up the clematis (a jackmanii) growing by the garage. In past years, I've simply let it entwine the azalea in front of it, but I think it will be beneficial to both plants to encourage the clem to go climb somewhere else.

Robbo - Here I am, one climate zone behind you, and I already have my peas, spinach, lettuce and carrots in... What HAVE you been doing?

Luckily, I don't have much to plant this year except for a couple new wisteria, which I won't buy until they're blooming.

I was thinking of you because my dicentra out front are already about six inches out of the ground, as are several of my columbine out in the garden. Also, the peony are starting to sprout up and the iris are getting ready to bud.

If it does not stop raining here soon, I am going to completely lose it. I want to wear my strappy sandals, dammit!

The snow pile in my office parking lot is almost completely gone. Woo-hoo! Spring is only a couple of months away!

I've got my pepper seeds started indoors, but they seem to be late in coming up.

And we all want that for you.
