It was warm enough last week to finally get my first flowers of 2011 out. Pansies are always my flower of choice for the beginning of the season. They can take even a bit of cold without needing a lot of work since I know I will not keep covering them every night. (Tried one year and I lasted 5 days with the plan…)
If I buy a bigger amount for many boxes I drive to my favorite flower grower’s garden but this time I got just the first hanging version from up town to make our front door entrance more appealing. I chose this variety since I adore multicolored ones.
