Spring has officially been here for at a few weeks now but traces of snow are still around. I just checked the back yard for signs that my shrubs and japanese mapls are sprouting but nuthin'. Out front where it gets warmer, the tulips are up about 3 inches and the sedums are sprouting up too. The Japanese iris are poking up and they will be the first to show us a flower. I finally took away the Christmas lights and changed my planter to a spring look. A Heather plant is in there now along with the dogwood twigs. If I listen to Martina from Sheridan Nursery, I do need some height and a focal point. I would like some icicle pansies for there too. I am trying my hand at growing some delfiniums from seed. We shall see how I do. If it works I will have 36 delfininiums which are purple, pink and white. Also new for this year are some helebores for the backyard and my new Anniversary rose. I will plant my rose beside the bird bath. Hurry up warm weather !
