It is still very wintry here at the Painted Tulip. Snow is covering the ground, day temps are in the 30’s F and nights in the 20’s. Some weeks are sunny; others are very gray with sun peeking out just once in the week. But as the days are getting longer, changes are happening:
Lilac buds are fattening
In the cold frame: Dianthus is pushing up stalks
Ranunculus and Anenomes are growing and putting out new leaves
Soon we will be transplanting snapdragons (250 +) and stock into the cold frame.
In the hot house:
Lilies are starting to grow in their crates
and I am seeding new trays of flowers every day
Still awhile until we get outside and start weeding and planting but we are at the final push before Spring.
