Pre-spring planting...

It is about 11:30 a.m. when this picture was taken; note that garden is in the shade.  This part of the garden gets full sun around noon, then it's sunshine for most of the rest of the day.  Soil has not been prepped properly, but planted these anyway for the pleasure of simple gardening.  Curious to see how these plants will thrive as is.

Late winter plantings...

Pansies, violas, and especially Johnny Jump-ups, are some of my favorites.  These are what I plant as soon as they become available at the nursery, in the late winter/early spring.

Calico Quilter's Garden is my very own garden blog where I can post pictures from my garden and keep a gardener's diary.  This year I'm thinking of a cottage garden full of herbs and flowers, planned for the back half of the property.  There's much to be done but I will manage.
