Bring on SPRING

Sunflower I planted last summer **** sigh****

February in Indiana is most un-predictable that it's predictable (if that makes sense). It's predictable in the way as to one day it's 50 degrees and the next it is 20 degrees. In my previous post I mentioned planning my garden, so that's what I have been up to this past month as I patiently (sarcasm) wait for warm weather maybe if I'm ambitious I'll add some new landscaping. I keep going over it in my mind and drawing it on paper, and of course keep changing it.

I have already started some sweet peas, morning glories and I'd have more flowers started if I could make up my mind on which plants I want where. Of course I will have some more sunflowers but I sow those directly outdoors in late spring or early

I ordered daylilly ’Stella de Oro’ for the border in front of my rose garden the other day from "Classy Groundcovers" I have never purchased anything from them, but they were highly recommended on Dave's Garden website. If you ever buy from catalogs or online stores for gardening supplies or plants, I would recommend checking out Dave's site. Recommendations come from real gardeners whom have purchased from these companies.

Tonight we are expecting more snow AND ice! I guess I will be stuck indoors for the weekend. But, there are always plant and gardening catalogs to thumb through. Maybe I'll find something unique to add to my garden this year.

Karen, one acre is a great amount of space for a garden! I love daylilies too and there are loads of gorgeous new tetraploids available now.
