Here in Southern California it is time to plant for winter and early spring color. I am rather excited about it this year because I have been doing lots of garden editing...a nice term for digging out plants you deem unsuitable, or overgrown, or just plain too much work...and this has left me with several areas within the borders to plant annuals. Because my garden has been so intensely planted I haven't had the space to do this in a while. So, I must admit that I have gone a little overboard, and I really haven't finished yet.
So far I have purchased some Alyssum...love the fragrance...several dozen Iceland Poppies, Calendulas, and a few dozen Snapdragons.
And, of course some Daffodils...who can be without daffodils
You also see I have several little succulents to add as accents, courtesy of the local Dollar Store.
I still have many more plants to put in, amongst them will be Pansies, Feverfew, Foxgloves, Stock, Primroses. and lots of Nasturtium and larkspur seeds. And you never can tell perhaps something else just might find it's way here.
I realize that many of you live in areas that preclude planting this time of year and in many ways I envy your winter downtime. Here, gardening is a year round necessity and sometimes I think how nice it would be to have a little down time to relax and enjoy reading seed catalogues!
Thank you for visiting me and wherever you live...happy gardening!
