everyone. I'm still waiting for it to stop dropping down past freezing at night to start messing about in my flower beds. I cleaned them up but that's all.
nlmcp:I have a mountain ash that is beautiful with berries and the birds love it! Also a flowering plum that astounds me every spring with it's pink flowers. It does drop the little plums in the fall and needs to be cleaned up though. I used to have a honeysuckle but it succumbed to the winter one year. But it was really a cool climber! I'd like to try it once again. A Japanese weeping cherry tree is pretty different but I'm not sure how difficult to grow.
My tulips are about 8 inches high but no blooms. My pink peonies are poking through the dirt. Last year I sprinkled a couple of cans of flower seeds all over the beds, just to see what would come up. Well most of it became nothing. Do flower seeds become old? I also planted a lot of bulbs that were on sale, and NONE of them came up. Do bulbs get old too? They looked ok with little sprouts but were on sale.
Now this spring I have some little greeny things sprouting up and I don't know if they're weeds or remnants. I'll have to see I guess.
I going to try and plant some square mats of herbs: chives, marjoram, summer savory, parsley, thyme and sweet basil. I really hope something grows so I can use the herbs for cooking. I really have no space for veggies .
The problem is that Mr. Tootles has adopted that sunny corner of my little garden as his "perennial" resting spot.
