Thumbs up Hurray!

I planted one last year and just got another one! Just hoping the wild rabbits don't eat them up.

Yikes! Rabbits eat these, too? Rolling my eyes. They'll likely be gone in a day here, then. Sad

They chewed some of the one I had last year, so I didn't get any blooms after I got it in the ground. Maybe they'll leave it alone when it gets larger.

I'll make a mental note to spray this one with Plantskyyd when I plant it...especially.

Thanks again, Marilyn! Thumbs up

I decided to go ahead and cover these against rabbit damage, and the cold overnight temps we're supposed to get over the weekend. Smiling

Good idea! Thumbs up

I noticed that we are suppose to have colder temps than average for the weekend. I might have to put all my new plants (annuals) into the garage during the nights.

On Mother's Day, I planned to take up a plant of Salvia 'Forest Fire' and plant it for her, but with the temps getting as cold as they predicted, I'm going to ask her when she wants it potted. My parents live an hour each way (north) from us.

Yeah. Rolling my eyes. If I recollect right, there's only been one Mother's Day in recent memory that the weather here completely cooperated for an outdoor flower planting party.
