2013 Perennial & Annual Wish List

Spring is officially here! The purple crocus has once again sprung up in our front lawn indicating the new growing season. Although our last frost is not until mid April, I thought I would at least start getting together a list of ‘must haves’ for this season. So here are my gardening thoughts for 2013:

  1. I so love your list. The snow is piled pretty high around here. It will be awhile before my daffodils poke up, but the promise of spring always brings hope.

  2. Yesterday I picked up a package of gladiolus bulbs, peony and red hot poker roots to plant. I am eager to get them in the ground, I hope the weather cooperates! Fortunately we are not worried about snow piles but perhaps a little frost.
