Ready for spring
I'm in the mood to go buy new plants for the patio. I love having lots of plants inside and out. But a friend was telling me that he thinks we could still get a hard freeze this winter, it is still the beginning of February after all!! So I'm waiting a few more weeks before I go get lots of new pretty plants!!
I'm not one to pull plants in for the winter, they're way overgrown already and besides, I like all new ones in the spring. So yesterday I cleaned out all the dead plants, the ivy and a few of the cacti are still growing, I like that!!
In the spring I like spending time in nurseries looking at everything. Deciding what would look best in which pots, then bringing them all home and getting my hands dirty digging in the dirt. Getting the plants re-potted and set around. I find gardening very relaxing.
I'm so ready for winter to be over!!! I know that others in the country still have snow and many cold weeks ahead of them.... I love the weather here though.... sorry guys!
