Is it spring yet?




I can’t wait to garden. I realize I am a few months away, but still.

I can't wait either. I ordered my seeds this week.

David said...

Come rip out overgrown shrubs with me!

Tamisha said...

Me too. Sick of winter. Sick of cold. Sick of bundling up. Ready for warm air, sunshine, and landscaping!

Me too-there is a lot of work ahead. I rarely get at it before March though.

I am not ready for spring -- still want to do more x-country skiing in the Cascades. But since we are on the topic, there are lots of great pnw native plants you might want to consider for your garden/front yard, such as Oregon Grape & Red Flowering Current. LOVE them! Happy planting,

I feel the same way. Instead, I've spent the last three days trying to find the perfect cream/gray/something for my northern exposure living room with an 8'x9' natural rock fireplace. The black skies aren't helping. Meh.

What are you going to do about the giant tree stump in your front yard?

my favorite and my best said...

can't wait. i felt it today. tiny bits of freshness drifted into my nose.

Decorno said...

sotto: the stump is gone. We have a small pile of barkdust left behind from the grinding of the stump. I need to deal with that. And next I need to draw up a plan.

Short answer: I have no idea. But we can't let my better half hear this because I promised him that if he let me tear everything out, I will immediately have a game plan for what we would do next.

And I do not.

Decorno said...

David: If you were closer, I would! (Or I would call some brawny men and hire them to do it while we drank beer and watched them work.)

May I suggest a rose garden. You live in a climate quite favorable to rose culture - lots of rain, mild climate, low humidity. Do your research. You could have antique roses in some of your beds and a more formal area for hybrid teas. I have more than 100 roses and I cannot wait each year to see those first blooms.

Oh man, am I excited for Spring. I'm going to pick up a hand spade today to work on my compost, maybe I'll grab some bulbs as well to force up. My grandma's tulips and daffodils are already pushing out the ground... damn her luck! I'm so jealous. Well, at least my orchid and my geraniums are still blooming, don't know why, but they are, and they make me so happy in this awful, gray, northern downpour.

Have you seen any of Michael Schultz's gardens? He's one of my faves in terms of hardscaping and working with what's already there. He's in Portland and also has an incredible website. http://www.michael-schultz.com/artist.asp?ArtistID=4282&AKey=G4YBGL8X

Bonnie said...

Me too. My garden is a mess right now cuz it's too cold to go outside and clean it up. I'm not goin out there till it's warmer, like 75 or 80 degrees, maybe 85... well, except to pick up the big fat avocados... then run back inside.
