In Wisconsin it is quite cold- though it rained today- it will snow tonight! I am so done with winter. It has been a beautiful one, but I am done! I am quite jealous of the people in zones 7-11! Can I come visit??!! I can’t wait any longer. My Amaryllis and forced Hyacinths are done. I want to go play in the dirt!
I have already picked out my list of new plants to add to my garden this spring. I have chosen: Black Barlow Columbine, Montbretia, Peacock Orchid, Peruvian Daffodil, Picotee Begonia, Purple gem Dahlia, Holland Festival Dahlia, Fantastico Dahlia, Impressive Hardy Mini Glad, Robinetta mini Glad, Vista Hybrid glad, Blue Wonder Toad Lily, Blue Triumphator Apaganthus, Gladiolus Murielae, Californica Brodiea, Morning Glory Seeds, Hyacinth Bean (oooh!!) seeds, and Lupine seeds. I cant wait to add these to my gardens and watch them grow. Do you think I have chosen enough? Every year I find more flowers to add. Will I ever stop- doubtful.
PS – most of these flowers i have listed are available at Tulipworld.com
I really think I may take a trip to the Chicago flower show this weekend! Maybe it will cheer me up a bit. I need sun and I need flowers. One out of 2 is better than none. (I do have some cut/dyed daisies on my kitchen table in green, purple, blue, yellow and fuchsia- they last a long time too.) If you are in a zone 1-6 like me, you should go enjoy a flower show near you. I believe there are many listed on TulipWorld’s Facebook Page in Notes.
Well, enjoy your weekend! I promise to be more cheery next week. 🙂
