“Planting Today”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
One of the nice things about having some time off for Thanksgiving is that it allows me some time in the garden. Two weekends ago, I bought some violas and had time to plant only about a third of theme when the rains came. Today, I will be out planting the rest. I am determined that today will be a garden day.
I have had better luck the last few years with violas instead of pansies, so this year it will be all violas. One thing that surprised me was how limited the selection of cool season bedding plants there was this year. I guess with the economy, retailers have cut back on their stock. Because of this, I am beginning to wonder if I ought to consider growing more plants from seeds for this spring to get the colors, etc. that I need.
But, like Scarlett O’Hara, I’ll think about that another day. Right now, I am going to be thankful that today, I can enjoy being outside planting my favorite flowers.
