The robins are back, the grass is starting to green up, bulbs are popping and it was 60 degrees here in Chicago this weekend! All of this can mean only one thing to those of us with yards: Yard Work!
Time to make a little field trip to my favorite garden center and plant a few pots. This year I decided to go with all pinks. All these annuals are cold tolerant (pansies, carnations, violets, etc...) so hopefully will survive the fickle Chicago weather!
I added the little pine trees to my pots last November and the goal is to keep them living year round and just add some annuals or greenery depending on the season. The made it through the winter (there are two of them) pretty well.
