Looking Forward To...

Lupine--thanks Grace at http://gracepete.com/
Poppy--thanks again Grace and Catherine at http://agardenerinprogress.blogspot.com/


and Practically Perfect Pink Phlox--Thank you Gail at http://clayandlimestone.blogspot.com/

2011 started off with over an inch and a half of rain. Our temps for this week will be in the 30's and 60's with more rain coming mid-week. I do appreciate the rain, although I am asking Mother Nature to let the soil dry some between waterings.


Today I am Thankful for all of my blogging friends, gardening and otherwise.

Lupine has always been one of my favorite for how its foliage holds water droplets.

Brooke said...

I can't believe you have things coming up! We are a long way from that here! Your blooms will be as fantastic as your garden,
thank you for sharing it with us.

I'm looking forward to Spring, too! Enough with the cold stuff already.

Loved your comment by the way! It's on, now!

Dave@TheHomeGarden said...

Definitely a lot to look forward to! I can't wait to see some of those same things around here.

George said...

Yesterday I noticed some daffodils starting to pop up in our yard, but I think they should probably stay down for a few more weeks.

Becca's Dirt said...

Happy New Year Darla. I am ready for a new year. I see your gardens are getting ready for some pretty blooms. I spotted newness in my gardens too. Exciting isn't it. Can't wait to see those pretty blooms.

imac said...

Lots of shoots showing Darla, love that Header my friend.

Patsy said...

Looks like Spring at your place. I Will have to get my flower fix from you.

Floridagirl said...

Ahhh, the promise of spring! How exciting to find new seedlings popping up everywhere. I wish I could figure out how to get a good perennial garden going in this climate zone.

~The Robin's Nest~ said...

I'm looking forward to seeing that all on your blog too!

Hey, I was tempted to add Christmas to the countdown but didn't want to be stoned (like in the bibical days not the 60's!!)


Dorothy said...

Before winter is halfway over, you
will have flowers blooming all over the place!

Grace Peterson said...

Darla Dear, Thank you for the link. I'm so glad your seeds are sprouting and thriving--all this despite the cold temps you've had. I so look forward to photos of them in bloom.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh ---I love seeing those crocus plants and daffodils coming up.... That makes me yearn for spring... We have a longer time to wait than you do...

How's the new greenhouse doing?

sweetbay said...

Those Lupine leaves are beautiful. There's a lupine native to the Southeast that I would love to try. It grows in sandy soil.

NanaK said...

Oh daffodils, crocus and poppies! What a difference a zone makes - huh? I will live vicariously through your garden blog. It's exciting to see those seedlings popping up.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

This is the time of year I start to get jealous of you seeing all those seedlings. We still have frozen snow on the ground here, and I wonder what's going on underneath it. I'm about ready to buy some seeds to start wintersowing with so I can see some green sprouts.

Dar said...

I envy your early spring. Your plants look glorious in their green dresses and a bit of red trim here and there. Have a leisurely walk every morning and keep us thirsting for more. I love it. I still want your greenhouse.

Gail said...

Darla, I love blogging I've met new people and have plants from all over the US! I can see that PPPP is happy in your garden. Thanks for the holler out! gail

Dragonfly Treasure said...

Looking good!!! I have some bulbs comming up. We had alot of rain too. It didn't rain today...but then I had to fight the fog! I'm just never happy I guess!! LOL

Corner Gardener Sue said...

I have decided that I am going to enjoy seeing signs of spring in warmer places and not feel sorry for myself this year.

I do feel a little sorry for myself, though, that lupine doesn't stay alive for me. I did have a couple plants have lovely blooms for a couple seasons, but since then, I haven't had them survive the winters.
