It warmed up to 70 degrees yesterday and even though it's back down to 30 this morning, we got a nice touch of spring weather to come! I was outside running errands and found the prettiest yellow tulips at Trader Joe's.
Lenten Roses and daffodils are blooming and our fescue grass is just starting to warm up. I can see tulips starting to emerge and love the color they bring to the garden.
Our average last frost date is about April 5th so I still have over a month before I can plant any flowers but I am starting seeds this week.
I had a great success starting 'Lady in Red' salvia as well as 'Pink Sunday' salvia and 'Mealy Blue' salvia seeds last year and will definitely plant again.

I'm so excited with a new growing season to plan and plant some new plants as well as tried and true varieties.
