On another note, my seed babies are doing really well. My geraniums and salvia have been re-potted into 3 inch pots, and I have peppers, tomatoes, marigolds, pansies and scabiosa up. I will have to "cull" my peppers this week (remove the weak ones from each pot) which I really don't want to do. But I already have way to many peppers growing and am quickly running out of room on my indoor greenhouse. I am worried about the hostas - none have germinated, and it's been a couple weeks. I spent $5.99 on those seeds - I really want them to germinate, but one website I found says they can take a month, so maybe they are still coming.

Melt Snow, Melt!
So, I've been ever so patiently watching the snow in my yard melt - and noticing how big the patches of dead grass are every day. We had a lot of snow this winter, which is pushing back the start of spring and making me anxious. I think I would have been fine had we not driven down to the coast for Easter last weekend and seen their green grass and flowers and leaf buds - so well my old home of Victoria has cherry blossoms and daffodils, this is my yard today:
Although, compare it to my yard on March 12: Notice the bird bath - at one point this winter it was completely covered in snow, and we couldn't see it...
