I've been mostly ignoring the yard and all things gardening-related all winter, so not it is time to come out of hibernation. Like these spring bulbs:
|Purple/white crocus in the front parking strip|
|One of the few times in the year when my "neglected bed" is showy|
|Not just yet, daffs, but soon!|
|'Tennis ball' lettuce|
The tall sedum knows it is March.
This volunteer euphorbia is mostly a goner after the winter, but it made some vibrant red stems!
The butterfly bush is leafing out already. Time to dig out those loppers!
|If it starts out 8ft tall, how high will it get?|
Inside, I celebrated the first day of March in my usual way, by sprouting peas. I don't have any new seeds this year, so I'm testing out packets from 2007, 2008, 2011, and 2012.
