Punxsutawney Phil has seen his shadow, which means 6 more weeks of winter. I don’t think we needed Phil to tell us that this year. This is the first winter in a long, long time that seems like a “real” New England winter. More snow is expected tomorrow. I would have liked the ice that is still covering parts of the driveway to have melted before it snows tomorrow, but it’s too cold for much melting today. And once again my thoughts turn to Spring and my gardens because the planning starts now. I’ve ordered several plants for Spring delivery including a beautiful new Dianthus deltoides called ‘Cherry Red.’
I love Dianthus or Pinks almost as much as I love Echinacea. Pinks come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. They are perfect edging plants.
I can't imagine my gardens without Dianthus. They are little jewels. I'm looking forward to Spring and gardening!
