Yes, I can't wait to plant the 75 vegetable varieties I ordered. I'm also eager to get my 18 herbs put in the newly dug bed out front. But what I'm really giddily excited about is flower gardening in the Valley.
I made the best of my cottage garden back in zone 3. I had tiny little hidcote blue lavenders, my hardy rugosa rose and various other zone 3 beauties.
|A very small lavender.|
|I loved my bee balm. It was right in front of the living room window.|
But now! Zone 5b/6a! Just think of all the new flowers I can plant; rhododendron, butterfly bush, wisteria and bigger lavenders!
Spring can't come fast enough.
