  1. It was 70 in Colorado yesterday. It took every bit of self-control I had not to rush to the garden store and buy flowers. I'm sure we have at least one more April storm!

  2. I still need to rake some old moldy leaves away, then time? Those seed racks are very tempting!

  3. Wishing for blooms! It is a good impulse buy. Will the seeds wait? Can you?

  5. This one makes me chuckle. Since I retired in March all I want to do is plant my annuals. I keep reminding myself it is much much too early. I planted a flat of pansies to help stop myself from going too crazy.

  6. Hee hee, we bought a few geraniums for our balcony, but winter is returning. Maybe too soon? *sigh*

  7. ah!
    I'll have you know I planted mine in a pot ... I believe there's no such thing as "too early' if you have a windowsill. That's currently where my tomatoes are...

  9. I lost 8 tomato plants to an early rush of impulse sun...followed by two 27* mornings. I rebought and replanted for twice the pleasure (they were little and not too expensive). In other words, I understand completely.
