After I carefully planted everything inside, because it was SNOWING, the weather promptly shot up to the 70s. I can't win.
Pots in the parking lot. The 4 back by the picnic bench will be zinnias, the small green one in the corner will be daisies, the two big orange pots are for dahlias, the ones wrapped in wire are for tomatoes and raspberries. I've planted the raspberry....stick? and hope it grows! But nothing else is planted yet.
Pots by the door - back two are for violas, dark turquoise is for roses, the one by the trellis for black-eyed susan vine, the small purple pot is for parsley (i don't eat it, but my elderly neighbor does) and the pot with something green is for basil and chives. the chives came back from last year!
My reticulata irises did not last long. I'm not sure if they're meant to be ephemeral or if they couldn't take the sudden bouts of snow. There are a few other things sprouting - the far corner is disappointingly empty.
But I found an anemone!
And another one!
These would be hyacinths if I had more sunlight. Mutated hyacinths?
