I will, however, plant more seeds this year, especially of my favourite annuals: poppies, sunflowers, nigella and sweet peas. Especially those sweet peas. There is hardly anything more glorious than a bouquet of sweetly scented sweet peas sitting on the table or office desk, and I have the seeds already. I just need to get em in the ground come spring.
With poppies, nigella and sweet peas, I know once I've planted them once, they'll be the gift that keeps on giving each year, through the joys of self-seeding. I did get some poppies and nigella into the ground last year, and as I expand the garden area this year, I'll get the packaged seeds into the ground. I really will. This garden is much smaller than the one I left behind, so it's easier to manage and get through the regular garden tasks.
fourth garden season. Oh, I did get a couple of perennial grasses and a couple of rhododendrons, and a dwarf blue spruce, into the garden last summer, but there needs to be more. Some Sunkist cedar, for starters, since deer are obviously not a problem here, and more perennial grasses with good winter interest. Maybe a corkscrew hazel, and a red osier dogwood. I'm thinking!
Indoor Plant Décor, by Kylee Baumle and Jenny Peterson. This is the perfect time to be thinking about indoor gardening, after all. And the days are already starting to get a little bit longer--slow but steady, we'll get there.
What about you? Are you making resolutions, plans, or just going with the flow this coming spring and summer?
