Every fall and winter I keep potted pansies and violas in the front flower beds, and this spring I have a couple of voluntary plants blooming. I will work around them as I put in my marigolds and zinnias.
Supposedly, I am too far north for daisies to be a perennial but it seems that my front flower bed is a sort of micro-climate which allows some of them to survive the winter. And it’s been such a mild, warm spring that I already have a bloom.
And finally, I also have my first rose bloom, with several more buds forming.
