Sleep over

Got a little scared of dipping temps...these little stinkers got to have a sleep over and stay inside last night....The greenhouse has warmed back up, so out they go ;-)


Here is an update from our post  last Fall Re-doing the flower bed.

 I love how it turned out and plan on planting zinnias after the tulips are finished up with their beautiful display.

Now they will join us inside and we'll enjoy them for the rest of their journey.....

Pure Delight!

At this time, the greenhouse is still unheated....Freezing temps mean that I have to pamper my tender starts. These guys get to be  snug as bugs in the house while overnight temps dipped to 28 degrees last night. 

Meanwhile, the cool weather starts embraced the cold and held their own in the unheated greenhouse.

There among the Spring weeds, hidden in plain sight, spontaneous volunteer spinach starts are beginning to pop up. I love an unexpected surprise!
