It really felt like Spring today! I hope this warming trend continues. And with this nice weather comes gardening. While I’m terrible at keeping flowering indoor plants, the plants and seeds that I grow outside generally do well. I’m sure that is more thanks to Mother Nature than my green thumb, though.
The next few weekends will probably be spent cleaning up the yard and getting the flower beds prepared for marigolds and various coleus plants. I usually get these already started from a garden store. I’m hoping to have success again this year with sunflowers. We grew them last year from seeds and they turned out very well. I love the way sunflowers look, their height and observing the small birds and bees that migrate to them.
I have missed the wonderful colors that gardens provide. I’m ready to step out of the dullness of winter and into the warmth and color of Spring!
