Glad tidings

5 Feb

The Breck’s sale catalog for bulbs direct from Holland and perennials has arrived!  It is well received after Polar Vortex Part 1 & 2.  Fun fact:  we have 23 days to receive 6.9 more inches of snow to tie the seasonal record set in the winter of 1981-2.  That is likely!

In the meantime, let’s order bulbs and plants.  The lower seasonal temperatures may have killed off plant material.

My shopping list:

Frosty Morn Sedum and Goatsbeard for the Moon Garden

Red border lilies and Crocosmia for the center island bed

Rainbow Yarrow for the southeast corner bed

Deluxe gladioli Mixture Super Sak

White Swan coneflower (note my signature icon)

    The spring bulb catalogs give us hope that spring is around the corner. I love how the snow stacks up on the patio table, like a giant cake!

      Interesting to note, the table top is a flat open mesh, so a lot of snow floated thru it before the accumulation.

      Hopefully the snowfall has insulated the six dozen speciality iris bulbs (I planted last year.) from our subzero temperatures.
