Speaking of which, my flower seed packets this year are my tried and true faves zinnias and cosmos, along with aubrieta, gazania, California poppies and daisies. I’m thinking I’m going to devote one fairly big raised bed to veggies and herbs and another big one – or maybe two smaller ones – to flowers. I have yet to figure out exactly where the underground sprinkler system’s pipes and heads are in the backyard in order to place the container beds, not to mention my crape myrtle tree. Tomorrow night, I think I’m going to run the sprinklers so I can get that settled once and for all. Not that we need any more rain, but that seems to be the easiest way to figure it out.
I’ve already bought one raised bed, so I’d like to get that together, too, so I can get an idea of its size. Then I can go buy a few more, depending on what I want/need. I’m so glad it’s going to be in the 60s tomorrow and 70s through the weekend. Should be perfect gardening weather. And I’ve got a lot on my to-do list. Don’t you just love Spring!
