I love the subtle signs of spring pictures!

I've been interested in growing some Artemesia (sp), but I've learned that the Sweet Annie is not adapted to Hinds County's (Mississippi) heat zone. Plus some of the Artemesia is apparently invasive.

I will look into the Limelight variety you have with the pansies. It is beautiful.

Fabulous blog!

Wow, Jon - your sedums are so full already. It's so darned dry here, guess if I want some of the stuff to wake up it will need some deep watering.

It makes me feel a little guilty when visiting the northern blogs -everyone seems to be having such a hard winter. No guilt coming here it looks like you're ahead of us in reaching spring!

You are lucky not to have our bitter cold winter still hanging on here in St. Paul. I am anxious for some Spring weather to begin.

I am filled with envy as it is currently -18c and we're still buried under snow. The Verbena is really pretty. I love seeing green these days!

My only gardening has consisted of starting vermi-composting. It is really exciting - I think I must lead a boring life!
