Rain, snow, ice, it’s all happening this week.
So, I’ve been dreaming about what I’d like to try this spring.
How about making those trellises bright? I saw these in the demonstration vegetable garden at Hershey Gardens and thought, “Why not?”
The Hershey Gardens gift shop was offering these adorable felted wool birdhouses. I wonder if they can be hung on tree branches, or need to be under a roof overhang? I don’t like to put bird feeders out because we attract raccoons, skunks, squirrels, and even deer with them. A birdhouse, though, would be okay.
I saw this amazing shrub at the Cleveland Botanical Garden. It’s called Bottlebrush Buckeye (Aesculus parviflora) and it would make a fantastic deer-proof hedge. I can’t find a source for it, though.
While touring Stan Hywet Hall gardens, this crocosmia caught my eye. I snagged some at a closeout sale last year. I hope it survives our unusually cold winter.
I’m thinking this color combination would make some stunning patio planters.
Senetti are another option for patio planters, and fit the cool color scheme. These are bright enough to plant in front of the house, to be seen from the street.
Just looking at these ideas is getting me excited for a new growing season!
