|Those are snapdragons in my header picture. I planted them on March 7, 2012, and I am so ready to start digging in the dirt again.|
The growers were hit hard this winter, and the local nurseries are suffering too. Their stock is way down and the plants they have on hand were bitten back by the extremely cold temperatures. Even Home Depot doesn't have anything, except for some straggly Pansies and a few Cyclamens.
I guess I'll just have to be patient for a little longer ... but in the meantime, I'd like to reminisce of springtimes past by sharing pictures of some of the flowers I planted.
Lavender Lantana, May 2013
Sunpatiens, May 2011
Red Verbena, April 2007
I hope Mother Nature is being more cooperative where you live ... and I wish you a March filled with many happy hours spent digging in the dirt, with visions of Spring flowers dancing through your head!
The word lagniappe, as defined by Webster's, means "something given or obtained gratuitously, or by way of good measure."
"Time never turns backwards
Its old charms to give,
In photographs only
Can yesterdays live."
