We've been outside getting the gardens done all this week.The weather has finally warmed up enough to plant. DH dug 65 large holes one day and 40 the next and finally got the Brugs out of the GH and planted. Still have a few more small ones but 90% is done.This is the back garden with the seedlings and cuttings.

I see you planted the pots. Are you going to keep them over again this year or is that so if they have seed pods you can keep them long enough for the pods to mature? I sure hope your winter this year isn't as bad as the last one. Everything looks really nice. Can't wait to see things in bloom...lots of bloom!!

That is a whole lot of Brug! Wooo hooo! I'd say you have worked your tail off and you must have built one heck of a greenhouse as well. I cannot wait to see what you have this year. :)

Well, DH's head is so big tonight from all these compliments that I don't know if he'll be able to get through the bedroom doorway tonight. LOL
TARogers, The cross is for my 16 yr old mini Dachshund. We lost her this winter and DH made this temporary cross for her.I don't know how he got it into the frozen ground.
DR, All my big ones are in pots with the holes. The seedlings I planted in the ground as I'm trying to push them to flower this year.

Crestedchik, I had an uncle who raised a lot of dahlias, some were for show and he supplied his church with a lot or arrangements. When he passed away, his son sent me all his slides of the dahlias. Some of them are glass slides; shows how long ago that has been. I don't know whatever happened to all the dahlia bulbs. He was the nicest man I ever knew. I think gardening grows fine people, too.
