There are definite signs of spring here. The snow is almost gone and I can see the buds swelling in some of the trees. Its a good thing because I've really had cabin fever. To endure winter I visit several nurseries here and went to a favorite yesterday......Sunriver Gardens, Orem, Utah There were things in bloom and they were unpacking new plants. It really lifted my spirits. This is what I saw.

I found my persicaria lance corporal! One leaf peeking through! Yay, I couldn't remember where I had transplanted it.

The low tomorrow, early AM is supposed to hit 32 F and that may - MAY - be the last freezing temps. we have here in NE Mississippi. I can finally begin moving some of my hardier tropical plants outside and its time to begin waking my plumeria from their winter rest. I can perhaps begin shipping some of my staghorns, fiddleleafs, and orchids out that I have orders for. The next few weeks will be very busy and I can't wait! Ken

if any of you have a lowes home improvement near you go check out there plant clearance carts . i got 2 beautiful oriental lillies in 3 gallon decorative flower pots for 2.50 each , several 4 inch pots of daisies for 1.25 each , and some pretty succulents for 1.00 today . they had got nipped a little from the cold but were still healthy and thriving . every spring they end up with tons of plants to clearance because of unexpected temp drops . if they get the least bit nipped they go on sale .

i think mother nature has bumped her head and is confused . crazy weather we are having is stressful . they are calling for light patches of frost for us in the morning . it was 82 degrees a couple days ago . A/C on A/C off , heat on heat off . i hope something gives soon i hate waking up with a cold from the heat and A/C changes . plus it has confused my spring plants . Sad
