We are back into cold weather! I'm hoping my tulips (which are almost ready to bloom) survive this cold snap. We had a hard freeze warning for Sunday night/Monday morning but seem to have dodged that bullet. I have a box of goodies from Gurney's Seed & Nursery that is ready to be planted -- they shipped them a few weeks earlier than the "safe" date for my zone. The salvia and lavender plants are dormant bare roots and should be ok, but the pampas grass, butterfly bush and licorice mint must be planted -- yesterday. They will be going into containers this afternoon and I will just have to hold my breath that they survive in the front porch!
I got this awesome encyclopedia in the mail from GoGardenGoOnline over the weekend:
Nearly 800 pages of gardening knowledge!
And then I picked up the April issue of Connection magazine: Spring is coming, even if it doesn't feel like it these days.
Born & raised in Minnesota, transplanted to the Missouri Ozarks, and now living it up in the Chicago suburbs, I believe life is an adventure. This blog documents my life as I know it -- everyday things, photography, travel, and more.
