So, now it's weed growth time in River City...

This is my fav time of year, 'cept for the Days of Wind, which haven't really gotten going just yet. But my Nepeta has, and the lavenders are happy.

@ossobuco,
<sigh> we still just have the witch hazel blooming. Soon the daffs will pop and then the forsythia..... Croci are popping around the yard, but I don't think we have any in the yard.

@littlek,
I remember forsythia and croci (crocussesesses) in Evanston. I loved them.

I've never gotten into daffodils, probably some lack of a defining moment - same thing with marigolds. I have a friend who gardens near Lake Isabella in California. He battles gophers, battles gophers, battles gophers. Plants, plants, and plants, in ever more constructed cage maneuvers. He's trying to get a hillside of daffies going. I'll post a pic if he does.

On loving and disliking various plants, as picking plants was and maybe still is my job, I got to taking plants as appropriate in certain places and bad babies in others, and tried not to hate any one plant. I didn't succeed, as I hated Raphiolepis for years and years. So much of plant love is emotional.

@ossobuco,
Yes, plants hold emotional bonds. My mother hates daphne and dahlias, my sis and I love them. I don't much like panmsies, but my mom loves them. We usually mesh well on other plants thought. On marigolds - I like them in theory (as bug repellents and cheerful orange), but I still don't like them much.

Anywho - the spikes of spring bulbs are up and I am anxiously awaiting flowers.

@littlek,
Croci, here on LI (I'm here for the weekend), and in Boston. Usually LI is ahead of the land of the bean and the cod, but not right now.

Around here they use heat lamps inside to grow all year 'round.
