Perfect day today for planting in the garden...temps in the upper 70s.

Stopped by the nursery yesterday and picked up some verbena.

Still looking for a few more items to add to the garden this spring.

This winter was unusually mild in Northern Virginia except for a few weeks in February. Several of my garden herbs wintered over and several annuals are sprouting back up - Lantana and Zinnias so far. They never overwintered before and I did not take precautions such as mulching.

I have had a vigorous bed of Hellibores planted by a previous owner. They always bloomed in December and January over the past decade. This is the first year they did not do that. They started blooming when the temps hit the 70's and 80's in March and April. Very strange.

Interesting I'm in your same area and my Hellibores were blooming in early January. Which reminds me I actually need to do some trimming of them in the next couple weeks.

I got a Dicentra Amore Rose Bleeding Heart from Bluestone that I planted this afternoon. Next week an On and On daylily will be coming from them. The Bleeding Heart is a replacement for one I got last year that didn't make it, but other than that, I have been real happy with their plants. And there was no quibbling about getting the replacement.
