We took a quick trip to the local nursery on Sunday to pick out a few flowers for the garden. I came home with a box full of my favorite springtime blooms...Ranunculus.
Since Southern California doesn't get cold enough for most traditional bulbs, these Ranunculas are the closest thing to classic spring blooms that we get.
They were on sale so I picked up eight four inch pots and a six pack of lobelia which gobbled up my $20.00 flower budget.
I had already snuck in a couple of itty bitty tomato plants, a cucumber plant and another strawberry plant from my weekly grocery budget. I will re-pot the vegetables and keep them in the sun room until the weather warms up a bit.
As soon as this little rain storm passes by I will be out in the back garden clearing away the winter debris and overgrown vine mess that has all but choked out my rear perennial bed. After that, I will add some compost and plant these beauties in the ground.
I'm hoping to have pictures of the area to share with you soon.
Have a wonderful Tuesday.
