Now that winter has finally arrived and doesn’t appear to be leaving for a while, it is time to move on (mentally). I have planted some bulbs for forcing, but there are no weeds to tend to. So, that leaves one thing left for a hopeless flower freak: planning for spring!
I have enjoyed dreaming of new flowers that I will have to find a place for this summer. (My yard will never be large enough for all the flowers I would like to own.) My husband is planning his improved vegetable garden this winter. That leaves me to do what I want for the rest of the yard!
I’m starting with the list of new plants I want to add to my yard. I want to add more tropical plants on two sides of my pond. Then I am planning on designing a perennial butterfly garden as well as a colorful shade garden…who knows! There may even be more! This should help me with my daydreaming about my garden.
My Tropical garden list of plants:
- Elephant Ears: Jumbo & Plumbea Nigra
My Colorful Shade garden list of plants:
- Bleeding Heart
- Toad Lily
Butterfly Garden list of plants:
Wish me luck!
