Those colorful flowers will perk things up a bit.

The falling pot must have been very heavy to flatten that poor victim down to the ankles like that.

He Carl, have you met Plant Delights Nursery outside of Raleigh yet? They have beautiful botanical gardens and they will be open for visitors for the first time this year, next weekend. Details here: https://www.plantdelights.com/pages/open-nursery-and-garden-dates Now THAT is a great place to get interesting plants. Postage is a small fortune, but you can buy in person a few weekends a year….

Oh, what sweet beauty! You are a few weeks ahead of us. Our Lowe’s held little besides pansies and empty tables yesterday, but it won’t be long now! Happy planting!

The WalMart garden section is still empty but this morning I did get fertilizer, grass seed and several bags of top soil for bald spots. Up in in Greensboro I think I am the only one that waters the lawn. They can’t understand why theirs is brown and not growing.

I’ve been buying up mulch and so far 2 bags of Milorganite. We counted nearly 20 deer running through the ravine near our house this morning, but the Milorganite is helping discourage their curiosity about our side of the fence 😉 I am still pruning and watching for signs of spring. A lot of folks in this part of the country plant grass that turns brown all winter. so ugly! But ours is a tangle of wildflowers and whatever wild grass wants to grow. It is vibrantly green and happy with just what rain will fall. Greensboro is a great place to live if you like hush puppies, barbecue and Brunswick stew 😉

Lotta pulled pork. Never heard of the stew must try it. Having lived in Miami ate lot of Caribbean food and of course my home cooked Italian. Yes, the wild flowers and there are these mini strawberries about the size of very small peas.

I used to be pretty good with plants. Now every plant I so much as look at dies. I still enjoy visiting the plant nursery, though. I especially like the tiny cactus and the fruit trees.
February 18th, 2017 at 15:38
Yes, the tiny cacti and the succulents.

Ha ha! Clever image.

I wonder if plants would flourish is a caterpillar flower pot ?
February 16th, 2017 at 20:31
In this part of the world those feet would be covered with mukluks, snow shoes or skis. Today being -22 C (-2 F) we’re only dreaming of spring.
February 16th, 2017 at 21:23
Now that gives new meaning to “getting cold feet”.
February 16th, 2017 at 19:30
Loved the flower pot with the feet. LOL
February 16th, 2017 at 21:22
So corny. Could not resist buying it. It’s a Key West/Miami kinda thing.

Oh, Carl — sitting here in boots and a warm flannel robe over a cashmere sweater, flannel bottoms over leggings, typing with cold-cramped fingers in my beyond chilly apartment, I find it hard to believe my time for flowers will arrive any time soon. Meanwhile, I will depend on posts like yours to keep the faith. 🙂 Great pot, btw.

I’m still digging myself out of the snow (that’s still falling) up here.. so.. : )
February 16th, 2017 at 15:07
I could not back out of the drive way for 2 days because could not get any traction on the ice.
February 16th, 2017 at 17:28
I know your winters are much milder than up here, but… no salt? How about cat litter? I know.. I’d rather stay in too! Safer than slip-slidin’ around! 😀
February 16th, 2017 at 21:25
Yes that salt did help. Having lived in Miami for 60 years, just 2 years in Greensboro is still new to me. It snowed in Miami for about a minute in 1977.

The same is true for me after all my pots suffered from 2 nights of freezing temps. It may be a while before I get to the nursery however.
February 16th, 2017 at 11:15
I’m in North Carolina. I should be OK if I wait two more weeks.
