Can't wait for pansies at the nursery and time to get outside and finish up what I didn't do in the yard during the winter. The days have already started to get longer with the sun up by six in the morning and not setting until six in the evening. I'm excited. The sun feels different or maybe it's my imagination. I know that the trees and plants know spring is near. I'm planning to start my ornamental sweet potato vine tubers soon. Don't want to start too early. This will be my first year trying to start some that so far have made it. I've never been successful with cuttings surviving inside during the winter. I store them in a box in the basement with my canna, elephants ear, and caladiums. When temperatures start to warm up I'll start them on my porch again. I ordered 2 other types of elephant ears, begonia tubers for hanging baskets for the porch, and some other bulbs I can't remember. I also got loose in the garden center and bought bear root peonies, black eyed Susans, 2 types of lillies, dahlias, gladiolas, and some others.
