Spring Planting...

The Spring planting season is well underway here. I picked up a few things to plant last week and went to work over the weekend. We plant everything in pots as the ground is just too hard and the soil isn't conducive to planting annuals. Palm trees and cactus do fine but not these delicate flowers. LM planted the marigolds and some watermelon seeds (we'll see how those do - I'm expecting some green leaves only as I obviously didn't leave enough room for any melon). The other pot has purple petunias and allysum.
You'll notice all the pots have rocks surrounding them. We have a large bunny population and they get hungry. They love our plants. Laying rocks around the perimeter is usually enough to keep them away. I planted everything on Saturday and woke up Sunday morning realizing that I hadn't put the rocks in the pots yet. I thought I would have gone out to flowerless pots but luckily we didn't have any hungry visitors.
I love this pot. I can't remember the name of the flower though but it's so pretty and bright. If I am lucky these flowers will last until mid-June, maybe early July. After that it's just too hot for them to stay alive. But I will certainly enjoy them while I can...

This looks like fun! It will be 2 more months before I can start think about doing that in Park City...
