still alive!

Still alive, and hoping my plants will be able to say the same thing -- I'm worried about the borderline plants I planted -- the jasmine, angel trumpets, hardy ginger and the gardenias. Its been an unbelievably chilly winter, with the most snow I can remember in the 20 years I've lived here. Things have calmed down (for NOW) long enough for me to actually think about future plans for my garden.

To do:
1) plant daffodils. I might actually just go to box stores after a bit and see about getting any discounted plants that are no longer blooming. I really wanted to have this done last year, and didn't, because I was tooooo pregnant and then tooooo distracted with a baby!

2) plant the tulips that have been sitting in my fridge for the better part of a year.

3) come to think of it, plant all the other bulbs that I have sitting in the garage.

4) get the MAC roses in the ground!

5) Is it to late to winter sow seeds? I hope not. After the ice thaws, I'd like to do that.

Well I can think of a lot more I want to do, but I suppose I should be realistic and stick with a manageable list for now.
