Ready. Set. Sow!

The snowdrops are up here in southern New England. This is the beginning. It is time to start thinking about the yard and garden. I promised myself last fall that I would be on top of it come March and get some different bulbs or seeds in the ground. In the past, so many of the bulbs we planted in the autumn months fell victim to voracious chipmunks (or "mipchunks" as my then two-year-old called them) and the flowers that did bloom were simply irresistible to the neighborhood rabbits.
This winter I checked out The All-New Illustrated Guide to Gardening from Reader's Digest and I did some online research on my "growing region". At the end of this month I will be planting anemones, persian buttercups, and dahlias. Hopefully this summer I can enjoy something like this......if the rabbits and mipchunks give me a break.


  1. So colorful! Don't let those rabbits boss you around - just put a banana on the other side of your garden to keep them distracted :)

  2. SPRRRIING! Yay. We haven't seen any sprouts in Chicago yet, but I can't wait!

  3. Those are beautiful photos. I love spring!
