Finally a sunny Spring day! Here is a group of daffodils (with slightly pink trumpets) from our front yard.

In the back yard, we find a brighter yellow in the forsythia bush!

And 2 weeks after building the "lasagne" garden bed, we plant the first plants. I chose the Merlot (red leaf) lettuce, the Dinasour kale and the Red Russian kale from a local organic plant sale yesterday. Because it is still cool, and to add some color I also planted a row of pansies.
Other seeds are being started indoors. I still have to plan much of what I will grow.

And of course, I must update the watercolor garden journal, too!

Lovely to see those yellows. We are getting a blizzard tonight. I guess it's good we have no blooming flowers yet.
