SPRING PLANTINGS

Caryn and I on our weekly play day returned to Star Nursery to get some plants for our yards. The weather has been lovely with temps in the 70s and lots of sunshine. Perfect planting weather before our rain and wind storm of last night, but all is well with the flower garden for now. The roses and berries are pruned too.

Our shopping cart at Star Nursery filled with Valentine flowers to buy
Lunch at my favorite place Paula's Mexican Restaurant
with a chicken advocate salad! It's good....
In our side yard, hubby is planting my Sunscape Daisies

First they need to be released from their pots then their
roots need untangled so they can grow. 
The official name of these fun yellow daisies that will grow in the desert
Gentle hands carefully plant the daisies
Job done, while i weeded the strawberries and watched hubby work.
Our pampus grass grew great this year but our little dwarf peach tree is struggling with bores. Last year it had 50 or more peaches but a local critter ate them all when ripe before we could get any...sob!

My thoughts are beginning to turn to gardening, too, despite the snow on the ground. I enjoy starting seedlings indoors.

Gardening in a severe climate like yours can be difficult. That makes flowers all the more appreciated.

Say hello to Caryn for us all. Those flowers will look gorgeous this spring and summer. Your lunch is making me hungry.

Good job with the planting of those pretty little flowers.
