The highest reward for a person's toil is not what they get for it, but what they become by it.- John Ruskin It's been raining for days, pretty cold outside and spitting snow. This isn't an “official” rain gauge, but you can see what I mean about the rain.39 degrees F I need to plant some of my bags of seeds I winter sowed. (I now have 64 left) To do that after you've had a lot of rain you need a good pair of garden clogs… …and some gardening gloves at the very least. Planted a bag of dianthus (victoriana, cherry magic, edwardiana) around the border of the fairy garden. Also planted two bags of convulvus in the “middle circle” as a border. This is the “HOS” or “hunk of seedlings” method of planting. Glory-of-the-snow are still popping up all around and about the only thing colorful I can see. Oh, these days have been so dreary! The daffodils are staying bundled up. It must be too cold to make an appearance just yet.
