& what seems like the slowest transition to spring ever. (my gas bill validates those feelings ~ last year average temps were 45, this year 33!)
At least the snow is almost gone (but only for now, there's more forecasted for Monday)
A happy milestone of spring ~ the first trip to the greenhouse with 'Blue Zebra' (from Hort Couture) taking the honor of being the first plant purchase of the 2013 season!
That title brings with it a lot of fussing & coddling so as to find just the right spot.
The fun stuff that gets overlooked during mass planting season.
in a zinc carrier (second photo), nope.
in a vintage sugar canister (above), maybe...
in a rusted iron basket:
and most importantly, very portable ~ so when the snow returns, they can be brought indoors ~ warm & undamaged...
Something I can't promise the first crocus:
maybe it will only be a dusting???
and hopefully won't arrive until after egg hunting is over!
Happy Easter everyone.
p.s. Don't give up on me ~ I'm feeling dangerously close to blog visiting again...
