The Sun Came Out.

And it's still shining. Not a cloud in the clear blue sky. It's amazing what a little sunlight will do for the soul. It's 41 degrees.

The perennial bed from the front walk. In a couple months, new plants will be going in from the wintersown containers that will go out on Friday/Saturday.

Last year's plants are still blooming. This one is Mountain Bluet.

By the front walk, the 25cent heucheras and dusty millers have created a nice combo.

In the basement, 260 quart/six inch pansies are drying out. I spent a grand total of $2.89. Sales tax is 8%. You do the math. These will be my containers for some of the annuals to be sown in April. They needed to leave the garden center. My boss made me a deal I couldn't refuse.

Will have to spend a few minutes after work picking up more firewood for the night. The cloner will be cleaned and refilled. More firewood will be split on Monday and Tuesday before work. Rain is expected for the later part of the week. Tonight, more below freezing temperatures. December has been colder than normal. Wetter too.

Woo, that's a lot of pansies. They push them here early, early spring and also late fall. On a mild fall they would last for a long time, but most people don't want to waste their time when hard frosts can take them out so fast. You garden looks great with the sun shining on it.
