It will seem strange to most that I would be so excited about rain. But last Sunday we had 3/4 inch and today we have had 1 and 1/2 inches. While this is pretty much what we normally get in January, it is also more than we had in the last 5 months of last year.
We are also having well above normal temps this winter and since the longrange forecast for our area is continued above normal temps for the rest of the winter I have declared it time to buy and plant.
A dozen new Daylillie bulbs (6 yellow, 6 purple), two Patchouli, 3 chocolate mints, two Indian Hawthornes and a Lavender have been added to FRED. Out on the front porch I added a red Primrose and a new Rosemary to replace the potted one the freeze got last month.
I need to refill the large tub out front with more red Geraniums as soon as they are in the garden center.
I am also going to get some seeds potted next week. I was given some watermelon and wisteria that I want to see if they sprout. Also have some gourd seeds from the birdhouse gourds I bought a couple of years ago and painted for gifts. I don't know what the "shelf life" is on these but I thought I ought to try anyway.
