I know it's too early-

-but I did it anyway. All of those plants, just pleading to go into the pots, and windowboxes. The pansies, johnny jump ups, and snapdragons have been planted for a couple of weeks already, they are cold hardy. But not so much the heliotrope, and begonias, and coleus, and sun impatiens.

I've been telling everyone to wait, don't plant yet. It's too soon. Our school plant sale pick-up was on Thursday, I reminded my friends who purchased plants to make sure they still tucked them in the garage at night. Mike and Charlie have been schlepping my flats of plants in and out of the garage for a while now.
Yesterday, I threw caution to the wind, and listened to the little green voices, yearning to burst from the confines of their plastic containers.
All that is left to plant are a couple of flats of annuals to fill in the flower beds.

And when I woke up it was only 42 degrees out.
Hoping that it all works out, at the most I may lose the coleus, and possibly the sweet potato vine-but I will keep my fingers crossed.

It's worth it to have COLOR again!

  1. Yes, it is too early, espcially up North, but it's all I can do to let those flowers sit there. I'm dying to plant them! I really appreciate your gorgeous photos! My eyes are ready for COLOR at this time of year. For now, I will walk out to my front porch and look at my stash and sigh... and wait a little longer... at least a few more days. It's hard!


Thanks for stopping by!
