Hurry Up and Wait!

This is the time of year when I am chomping at the bit to get stuff planted. Yesterday I must have paced around the greenhouse thirty or forty times, picking up a pot, putting it back, picking it up again, dying to get that plant outside in the fresh air. Fortunately my logical side took over and I left things right where they were, since we got frost last night.

I'm confident I'll do that little dance every day now, holding back every time I decide to plant something, reminded of the April 11 freeze of a couple of years ago when we lost all the hydrangea blooms for that year. Even though we're running warmer than usual this year, I'll be patient.....really I will...........or maybe I'll just put the new perennials out........


  1. Ooh, that's a lovely greenhouse. Um, and kind of a lot of things to plant. No wonder you were pacing... Now? No. Now? No. Now? No.

  2. This warm weather is making me nervous and I keep thinking about the freeze you mentioned. I sure hope that doesn't happen again any time soon.

  3. Patience is a virtue as they say.

    I wouldn't risk it, there's a whole season ahead.


  4. I am more than ready to get going in the garden. But you are right...a few more weeks. That frost really hurt last time

  5. I too keep thinking of the snow / freeze we had a few years back as I clean out my flower beds this past week. I am saying a little prayer for us all...

    Happy Spring Planting Dear friend - LOVE your blog!
