I've been hearing this from my northern gardening friends Robin. I suppose for you the warm weather is very welcomed. It is an indicator for us that we could start our summer too early... it already lasts too long. Enjoy your daffs.

2017-03-01T13:25:27.385-05:00

Hello Lorraine,
It must be even more like spring down there. I personally like it a bit cooler during these months. We definitely have more than our share of warm weather all the other months. Happy gardening and thanks for your sweet comments. Meems

Hi Daisy,
I'm thinking it would be a great adjustment from here to NC. Yet, it is a beautiful place and you must love being there. A dream come true.

I'm far north of you in central Ohio, but we're having the same issue, to some extent. We had a some snow and cold, but not very much. It's warming up far too early. My bulbs are popping up all over. Tomorrow I'll see daffodils in bloom. I've started my winter cleanup, but I know better than to get overly enthusiastic about gardening just yet. We've a long way to go yet.

How wonderful to see this post from you and to see photos of your lovely gardens! I have been inspired to keep working in my gardens.

I live further south than you here in FL and winter, what winter? It is already starting to feel somewhat like summer down here.

Happy Gardening and thanks for posting about your gardens once again. I have missed you ~ FlowerLady

I, too, have the itch to start trimming bushes, but I will wait another week or so. We are acclimating to the North Carolina winter, which has been pretty mild as well. We are just now starting our veggies going, with lettuces, leek, cabbages and indoor starts of tomatoes.
There is so much color in your garden, and it does make me miss the butterflies that I had year-round in my Central FL

I've been hearing that from other northern gardening friends, Lisa. When it's warm where you are, you can be sure it is extra warm here. Big green dinner plates indeed. Those are my Begonias nelumbifolia. I brought over one rhizome from my other garden and this is how they've multiplied in almost 3 years. You can read more about them here... http://www.hoeandshovel.com/2013/05/

It has been ultra warm here, SW IN, this winter too. I most of my major spring chores accomplished already. All I need to do is commence battle against the weeds that will be, are, popping up so soon. It feel strange to be so far ahead.
I so enjoy seeing the plants in your garden. In the 5th photo from the top what is that big plant just to the right of the staghorn fern on the left side of

Wow! What a blast of vibrancy and drama!
So good to see you posting here, Meems. Hope you're enjoying this glorious fall!

How wonderful to see a post from you! I have missed all the garden inspiration to give in your posts, with photos and info of what is growing in your gardens.

What a beautifully colored bloom! I believe I'd love that in my own gardens. To get volunteers from it also would be fantastic. It's hard to believe that you've trimmed these back but they still grow so tall.

In your zone you would lift, clean, dry, store and de-eye before replanting, Nancy.

2016-10-31T20:57:16.694-04:00

I think you should let the flower heads dry. Remove the seeds and then plant in pots.

2016-10-31T10:53:21.369-04:00

So my swamp flowers are done for this season, I only wish they would last until thanksgiving, but they bloom early October and done before Halloween. They do come back, but I want to plant some of the heads (where the seeds are) in little pots to give away next year. Is that the way to do it? Snipping the heads and just planting them in pots?

Hello! I'm a new reader and love your gardens! This year (2016) was my first trying caladiums in a large pot on a protected deck (zone 7a) and am now hooked. Forgive me if you've already answered this question, but I didn't pick up an answer in what I have already read. My question is regarding WHEN to de-eye. Do I: 1) lift, de-eye, cure and store; 2) lift, cure, de-eye, dry,

2016-09-21T05:57:43.699-04:00

When I bought my house it had been empty during a drought summer. I took the opportunity to reduce the grass by 3/4. There is a tiny bit in front and more in the back by the patio. I still think it is too much, but with a kid now it makes sense for her to have a place to play. 95% of the rest of the backyard are drought resistant plants, mulch and fruit trees. We use the grass clipping for mulch

I never thought of chairs making such a huge difference. Such lovely pictures and how wonderful it would be to sit and enjoy in such a garden.

The muhly grass is quite something isn't it? It looks like little specks of pink fairy dusts!

2016-07-05T05:34:43.014-04:00

Wow, I wouldn't of thought of aqua chairs making such a difference. Your garden is absolutely beautiful, I had no idea placing a path of just regular grass between almost jungle lush makes a beautiful contrast in addition to the walkway.

You did a great job of repairing your birdbath and then making it new and pretty again. Good job.



Very nice!

Very nice!
