|I'm pushing it a bit since it is so early in the season, but couldn't resist. I seeded some alyssum & pansies really early and need to make room for other plants in the greenhouse. Here's my little display with some pussy willows|
Let's see your early spring pots

|Joanne, Is the cat admiring your display of pussy willows? Great welcoming front of the house!|

|Very nice Joanne. Is your snow gone for this growing season? |
Love the pussy willow.

|Yes, that is my kitten wondering what the pussy willow is. I added a few more plants today. The container has Pansies, Alyssum, Lobelia, Stock and the pussy willows. For the snow: We can get snow until June. I will cover the plants for the 1st week at night. We still have below freezing temps at night, but these are all tough plants that can handle freezing temps. If I loose them, I have a bunch more. I started some stuff extra early and now have a space issue in the greenhouse. I cleaned up some south facing flower beds and there are a bunch of perennials that are just starting to poke up. Dafffidols and tulips are up too|

|Joanne, and Spring, very pretty! And I love the cat!! |

|Springcolor! I love the color of the huchera with the daffidols. I tried forcing some bulbs, and some are finished blooming while others have no signs of flower buds yet.|

|Beautiful photos Joanne and Spring. Makes me want to get mine done.|

|Every year I make up hanging baskets of double early tulips in the fall. I usually use red Abba and yellow Monte Carlo but i decided on a double mix from Scheepers for this spring. I always use new bulbs each year:|
I bought enough to also make these three large containers packed with the tulip mix.
These started blooming a little later, tulip Salvo and Green Wave:
I still need to plan for containers for when these will be finished...

|Warm reds with yellows....cool pinks and white. Nice! Springy!|

|Connie I love the pink and white against that white fence!! I'm not used to seeing tulips in hanging pots, I like them! |

|I need to post another picture in about a week when the Green Waves are completely open. Most of what you see right now are the pink and white Salvos. I think the Green Waves are what they call viridiflora tulips.|

|Connie those are beautiful. I never thought about potting them.|

|I forgot this one. The daffs are Scheepers pink daffodil mix. They are actually pinker than they look in the photo; I am very pleased with them. In the foreground is a later blooming tulip, Antoinette, a multiflowering one (3 or 4 blooms on one stem). I will take another photo when they open.|
The grassy looking plants in the background are a couple of rows of Japanese irises that I use as parents. Last year this bed was all lilies.

|Awesome Connie. What do you do with them when they finish blooming?|
Apr 15, 2013 10:51 AM CST
|Lynn, the hanging baskets are discarded when they are finished. The large containers, I'm not sure. I might decide to discard those also. The daffodils I'll keep. |
I went to the Oregon Daffodil Society show on Saturday (here in town). Boy, have daffodils come a long way! We have a number of hybridizers around here. I made a list, of course. I wish I had taken my camera with me.
