Spring Has Sprung!

Yeah! It's here! Although a few weeks after the "official" first day of spring, the true warmer days have arrived.

Those bulbs I planted back in October have burst forth with floppy green leaves and now we have an actual tulip! Patience has paid off. Now if we could only get the other ones to bloom...

Luckily there are flowers to tide me over until the heart of the summer - the pansies I planted a few weeks ago are flourishing. They look great and are keeping me busy until the summer planting begins in May. So cheerful and very resilient.

I am thinking hard about what to put in my new self-watering hanging basket and self-watering flower boxes that I just ordered. Lots of overflowing bright colors will work great.

Next project - tomatoes!
