Planted 6 Burgundy Star Easy Wave petunias & 6 Purple Flash ornamental peppers in the birdbath bed. These were trial plants sent by the Ball Horticultural Company. Expecting rain tomorrow. No more frost! Who knows? Maybe I’ll get brave and actually put the birdbath out.

What differentiates a bulb from a perennial plant is that the nourishment for the flower is stored within the bulb itself.…There is something miraculous about the way that a little grenade of dried up tissue can explode into a complete flower.
