Thank you!! Thank You!

It does excite me and makes me happy. It is free therapy 😀 even with the cost of the plants lol.

I have turned my kids on to it to. Mom did you get anything new today??

My 12 year old wants a blood orange tree but we don't have many full sun places. My daughter needs her own bed. That's on my list. She has picked out plants and helped me with my daffodil bed. We planted and prepped the bed as we went. 58 mixed while my husband was hanging up Christmas tree lights. Some narcissuses too still left. That was fun!! Now that bed is mostly all green stems. I was going to plant over it with seeds but then read that the subsequent watering can ruin the bulbs underneath so I won't be doing that. I might try to braid them though lol!

Narcissus are a mixed blessing. I totally love the fragrant ones. And it's never spring without the bright yellow King Alfred style daffodils. Problem is that the foliage dies. One great use of petunias, it seems to me, is to bury the browning foliage of narcissus going dormant for another long summer/winter nap.

This is the last of the jonquils Sweet Smile blooming in light shade.

Oh, contraire. You should post more. It's good for the soul to have discussions about gardening.
Keep going!
