Hi Lois,
I am mainly waiting for more favourable conditions for WS. every time we get any cold temps or snow, it is gone in a day or two and it warms up and becomes downright balmy, and pours rain in buckets. Lots of muddy feet (eight big ones) several times a day when the dogs go out for their bathroom break!~ :)

I have made up my list of possibilities, but it is so big that it needs to be 'revised'. I really need to get those perennials out there asap! I also had some houseplants that I intended to get planted this winter (inside of course LOL), but they are still sitting there. A very busy last few months, just not busy with planting. :) what have you been doing? :)

Lois

Hi Lois -such a great name not heard lots
I am hoping to start some perennials staring in Feb. This will be the first time attempting this.I have tons of seeds saved some from last year and this year- unable to plant any last year as shoulder was fractured and had the last? surgery done this xmas ( total replacement).Have lots of large mixed greens plastic containers.
Can't wait to get started need to get starter soil still. Everyones pics are very encouraging.
take care Lois

wow, Lois! it sounds like you have had a very painful time. I hope you are on your way to a quick and complete recovery now and that it is all behind you.

well it was not the greatest day to WS but the mood hit (and I had the time! :)) so out went some containers. Planted gaillardia 'arizona', gaillardia 'mesa yellow', lupinus perennis and pink, fig leafed hollyhock. columbine 'cearulis'.
I may do a few more perennials, but the rest will probably be annuals. At least they can wait a while.

Very mild out there today--8 degrees. I hope it cools a bit for the sake of my WS!

I planted several containers last weekend, but only have 10 containers altogether. I've really slowed down on winter sowing in the past couple of years. I do a lot of annuals in late March, early April, though, and that will be the bulk of my WSing this year.
