I was milling around The Home Depot yesterday when I spotted the most gorgeous purple viola plants and knew I had to buy them for my front window box.
When I was a kid my mother always planted pink, white and purple flowers in our yard. And now as an adult, I tend to gravitate to those colors as well. Funny how things work out that way.
Even though the temps are still pretty chilly and there isn’t a whole lot to choose from at the garden center, my window box is still jam packed with flowers. Right now I have daffodils, violas, cyclamen and moss planted. I’m not sure if those other little sprouts are weeds so I don’t want to pull them just yet. 😉
Well, I decided to finally do it this year. I’m finally going to re-stake the raspberry plants.
But first I have to clean up, prune and weed seven rows of raspberry plants before I can begin. It’s a total pain, but if I don’t get it now, it won’t happen this year. So that’s my big project for this week, sprucing up the raspberry patch.
What are your garden plans for this week? Do you have any leaves on your raspberry plants yet?
