Preparations For Spring!

Okay, so I promised to keep you up to date on what I am doing for spring and my plans for my garden. I am sorry that I do not have pictures of the process. Some of the seeds outer shells had to be removed and my hands were rather gross, blue and sticky.

Saturday I spent 3 hours planting some palm and other plant seeds. I planted 15 Sabal etonia seed, 149 Windmill Palm seeds, Yucca rostrata seed, Pink Mexican Petunia seeds, Mimosa ‘Summer Chocolate’ seed, Passiflora Hardy Blue seed, Rose of Sharon(ROS) ‘Helene’ seed, ROS ‘Chiffon’ seed, ROS ‘Blue Satin’ seed, Malva ‘zebrina’ seed, White TX Star Hibiscus seed, Red TX Star Hibiscus seed, Red Poppy seed, Crepe ‘Dynamite’ seed, Sabal Louisiana ‘Stiff Leaf’ seed, Sabal Louisiana seed, Sabal minor ‘McCurtain’ seeds, Sabal minor ‘NE Texas’ seed, Musa ‘Helens’ seed, Musa ‘Red Tiger’ seed.
Busy, busy, busy!. I have a lot of plants I brought with me and so far they are all living and doing very well! Busy spring ahead of me and I just want it to get here.  We have a Winter Storm with possibly large amounts of snow coming tomorrow through Saturday. The weather models have been everywhere this week, so anywhere between Flurries to 18″ could be possible, lol.

    Well it’s nice to know that you are getting ready for Spring. I can’t wait to see your yard………BIG photos of course. I hope and pray that your winter storm will not be as predicted!

      I would like a one large snow, lol. The largest snow that I have seen since moving from North Dakota in 1997 is 6″. A half foot is Lexington’s luck total apparently, lol.

      I will try and make the pictures BIG! : ) The main problem is WordPress’ photo up-loader and I have issues most of the time. Most of the pictures can be made larger if you click on them.

    It looks like we’ll all be battening down the hatches tonight! We’ll see what kind of storm we get, I’m sure you’ll have it worse than we do unless it becomes ICE! Be watchful of the mimosa. It’s very invasive here in TN.

      I just depends on where this storm ends up. Right now the KY/TN state line area’s look to have the most snow with the farther north or south from there you go getting less and less.

      The Mimosa is the purple-leaved Mimosa and I have heard it is not as invasive. I think they are beautiful tree’s, but the purple one is unique. I first need to see if I can even get them to germinate.

    I mean full photos of your gardens and not just one plant, lol. I love to look at garden designs for inspiration.

      Oh, okay, lol. None of my full landscape shots in FL seemed to come out or if they did they had weeds in them. I will try to post some though.
