    Default Is it too early to talk about the GARDEN?

    OH IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY! Heh heh.
    Oh...OK... it's still too cold here to do anything but plant a couple of winter primrose (done!) but its the PERFECT time to order my dahlias for the summer! What will I be growing this year? Oooooo! Take a LOOK! Fortunately for me, Washington State has many marvelous dahlia growers with their own varieties' tubers for sale. It's fun to grow something that you don't find at Home Depot....

    -trelyn_rhianon-jpg My daughter's name is Rhiannon so this one was my first pick.

    -harts_dr_mcmurray-jpg This one is a "Giant" variety; the blooms will be upward of 12" across! (Yes, much staking is required!)

    -nayelle-jpg My final choice; a anemone variety which is a type I've never grown before. Looking forward to seeing these!

    Anyone else dreaming of long days spent in the garden?

    No, its never too early to talk about it. Lol. Just way to early to plant. But those flowers are super pretty, so I don't blame you for dreaming of the Garden days, and spring, and some warmer weather. I'm so ready for some sunshine, and warmer, dryer weather. I'm so tired of the cold, grey days, and all this dirty snow that's laying around. It would be nice to see some greenery, and some colourful flowers, plus the spring isn't so hot yet, so it's nice for longer walks for the dogs.

    Gorgeous choices...a good friend in St Louis, MO is a gardener and ready too!

    I can't seem to get the hang of it, my middle sister, Lori, is awesome.

    But I do so love & envy, y'all's talents and at least, get to enjoy & appreciate
    the gardens...thank you!

    RIP beloved boy.

    I am still buried under 1/2 foot of snow with more to come tomorrow. I can't wait until spring!

    I pruned my grapes this weekend... but I still have a pile of debris in my Veggie Garden, and I also have my rose bushes there ! (we put them in temporary until we can get the new rose bed dug this spring. I guess I soon gotta get to work on that, to make room in my garden for FOOD ! (I grow for food, the wife grows for pretty things)

    We are thinking of putting up Leyland Cyprus trees as a privacy fence, just to block out the junk next door (neighbors, construction materials, this that, a boat... fallen over swingset... etc etc etc) neeeeeeeeeeeeeeed TALLLLLLLLLLL fence !

    Never too early! I just love the Rhiannon variety above - gorgeous. Actually, they would all look beautiful in your garden!

    We are still under onslaught of snow, but I have been thinking about my garden. I need to start getting my plots ready, but the ground is frozen. I am still unsure of when to start seedlings here. In California, it was so easy. Midwest, not so much to get the timing right.

    I feel your pain, Lari. We had about 8 inches last night and it's still coming down!
    @Vicaroo1000 I work with a man who is obsessed with dahlias. He has brought the most beautiful flowers into the office. He told me about a huge dahlia show here in Grand Rapids this summer. I'm going--even though I have a brown thumb.

    I headed to work this morning...made it about 6 blocks and decided it just wasn't safe to try to keep going the 9 miles to make it there and turned around and came back home. We have about 8 inches of heavy wet very slick snow out there. Even where it's plowed it is like driving on an ice rink. They are saying we could still get 1-3 more during the day, it's coming down pretty good right now again.
