Carolyn22, yes I grew that fuchsia indoors from a seedling. We had an outdoor bleeding heart fuchsia that grew from flat to 3 feet in one month, so transplanted it indoors by taking a part of the root, however it never grew any more after it was transplanted. By the way, I really like the light gradient from shade to sun in your photo and the flowers' pale colors look great with the green gradient.

warriorswisdomkathy, what a pleasing landscape photo! The flowers have a prairie look and the arrangement produces a wonderful lavender, pink, yellow and white palette. I can't identify any of the species but I'm getting a lavender catmint this spring that would match well with those flowers.

flowAjen, thanks! I could use that compliment since most of the new plants I started last year died. I've been doing a lot of research so this year I can help my plants more.

You posted a nice photo, very fresh and symbolic of the new year. Our winter in zone 5b has also been mild. Other than a few early snowstorms we've had little precipitation and some days it's as if spring is here.

I put in hellabores this past year - Not sure when they should flower for me, but perhaps I should start looking in the upcoming weeks.

DoGooder - we are mild as well. It can stay that way for me and I will be happy. I worked out in the yard this past weekend. It felt good to do that.

Thanks Prairie...

A bit quiet, (weather wise here), just a few flurries this morning but sunshine now. But burry and a bit breezy. Gosh how I'm looking forward to spring.

So what's everyone ordering this spring (plants of course). I'm still debating on starting seeds this winter, anyone else doing such?

Pix is (back to front): gypsophila babies breath, salvia nemerosa, dracocephalum, dianthus cheddar pinks.

You have posted some nice pics W.W.Kathy. Feels a little closer to spring. That along with 40's and rain in January!
I've decided to try my hand at seeds this winter. I'm new at it but I already have a start. I got some free cosmo and baby's breath seeds. The cosmos look good but I'll have to try something different with the b.b.
I have 3 nice basils started, all different. A couple of tiny tim tomato seedlings, and I just put some thyme, red chile, and delphinium seeds in some soil. I'm going to start some green pepper and better boy tomatoes soon too.
Quite a little list...but I have to be ready for spring and stay busy in the meantime! Hope I didn't bore everybody too much!
Oh, and my "paperwhites" in my picture above are starting to pop out. Helps to keep the winter blues at bay. Think Spring!

I like, what have been posted so far. Hoping to revive this thread, by posting some of my spring blooms, which I'm looking forward too. I would like to see some more from yours.

First is some Columbine (Aquilegia), barlow series.

Second is Clematis Niobe.

Third is Saxifraga

Iron...which gypsophla are you going tp start ( annual or perenn)? The cosmos can be started in the garden very easily, I just drop them on the ground and they start when they are ready, in my z5 it will be after last frost. Any annuals need to be started in April-ish for your area or the plants will get too leggy. No... just remember we were all new at gardening once.

Burn..just love the pixs, wow I haven't seen saxifraga in quite awhile, sooo cute.

Got 8.5" of snow yesterday, if anyone is looking for some have plenty to share,lol. I know, spring's just around the corner.

Hi WWK.
They were annuals. I just wanted to try some to see if the seeds were any good and frankly, I was bored. I don't much care for them and don't think I'm going to add any this year. I have plenty of cosmo seed and I will make room for some of them however. I will probably start another batch inside here soon because there are too many birds and critters to put out seeds or seedlings with much success around here. Thanks for the tip though.

I grow O. barberiae Lavender Mist and Purple Mountain, both perenns. and also a annual variety of Lemon and Orange. Just love them, can't figure why more people don't grow them, as they bloom the whole season. My annual reseeds itself every year.

Sorry, I should have labled, lol. 1. Lily, one of those new crosses between trumpet and oriental, 2. Echinacea palida I'm thinking or is Tennesseensis, 3. Scabiosa, one of the tall ones, 4. Delphinium grandiflora, 12-16", blooms ALL season, comes in blue, pink or white, (I only have the blue at the moment, anyone have seeds for the other colors???)

Well the daffodils are about finished, the peonies I planted last spring are looking lovely (I'm thrilled to say), the salvia 'May Night' is blooming, and the allium is finishing. And I have a question for all you veteran gardeners: it appears that the allium make tiny seed pods? on the tips? Do I let them do that all they want til they're spent, or do I clip them off and let the leaves die--so that it won't suck energy away from the plant?

It is entirely up to you. Many people will leave the allium heads as it adds interest to the garden. There are those that will cut the heads off because they like things neatened up. Then there are those that like to trade seeds and will wait until the allium head goes to seed so they can trade them - Typically I leave mine.

I usually deadhead the alliums, just makes it neater looking but now you got me thinking...it is a bulb and you should deadhead most bulbs cause it drains the energy...hmmmmmm

Hey folks, new here and my yard exploded in the last couple of weeks...and nobody in my house gets excited about it but me, so I'm GLAD to be here and see there really ARE other people in the world that get excited about things that grow and bloom (or not)!

1. Mexican evening primrose (AKA weeds in TX, or so I hear, Lol)
2. Misc. Miniature Rose, Anonymous but beautimous!
3. Peony, 'Sorbet', my absolute favorite, the first thing I ever planted, so my firstborn if you will (eeeww)
4. Double Knock-Out, always trying to sneak out the side fence
5. Another Peony, this one is a common variety I'm sure, but I don't know the name...maybe the hitchhiker knows?

burn, that anenome is beautiful, just love it
dome...how pretty your garden is, what hem. is that Hyperion?
flo and moonhowl...I'm continually amazed at how beautiful iris are, the luminecence of each bloom is spectacular, wouldn't it be great if they could get iris to bloom all season. I know there are rebloomers but they don't do it here for me...don't I wish!!!!!! Not sure if it's the altitude (6800feet) or if it's my zone (Z5, now listed as Z6) and the season's not long enough.
burn... the iris buchannii is new for me, in summer the foliage disappears, in fact I thought I had lost it, lol. It was the first thing to bloom in the garden.
Pix: Thermopsis montana, just began blooming realy nice and then the deer found it, so here's last years pix (***##^&***&)
Pix: Centaurea montana just starting to open nicely, also found a big chomp mark this morning.
Pix: Centauea m. Amethyst in Snow
Pix: Linum perenne (flax just opening)
pix: and a new aquisition, for me an annual Osteospurmum, nifty, huh?

wwk - You're probably seeing the pink flower - it's watsonia. I mostly have TB iris and daylillies in the front flower bed, also a few stray California poppies!
I love Osteospurnum - I have a purple one and I swear it looks like it was cut out with a machine, like a silk flower. If you are lucky you will get a few volunteers next year.
Look at all the Iris. Mine are all opening at once - my yard is gorgeous - I fear it will be short lived though.
