  8. Happy spring to you too. I'm so glad it's here, but I'm still worried Oklahoma might get a freeze before April. Keeping my fingers crossed.~~Dee

  14. I saw some green grass among all of the mud in the freshly melted side yard today. Yesterday some phlox and sedum peaked out from their snow cover already full of color too. I'm still waiting for the snow to leave the front yard though. A couple of days sure has made my yard look different! Spring is on it's way here too. FINALLY. Thank God.

  16. I've started some blue bonnets from seed. Hope I didn't get them going too early.

  17. Kim and Victoria, We scatter seeds in August or September. They grow all winter and then bloom in early spring. Don't know if that helps or not.
