I get to plant and grow things outside .... ALL Year :)
I just finished planting an Azalea plant... outside.. and I've put out pansies, daisies, marigolds, mums and rudabeckia. We also have Gardenia shrubs to put out in the back. Gardenia.. plants.. they smell soo good.
Some of these may die when the temp drops below freezing but a lot of them live to 20 degrees, so there's a chance! I found out yesterday that the mums will bloom twice in the year, spring and fall... crazy.
Yeah I'm on a plant high right now and it's great.
Next week I'm going to call someone about putting in some Magnolia trees. I have to have some of those!
Anyway, I just wanted to share some of my excitement, it's quite a change where in Minnesota my flowers would have all been gone now. I heard it was 36 degrees near Bemidji last week. Although the cool temps sound nice, my 70 degree day is quite perfect for me right now.
