    This Doronicum Little Leo is a belter - comes back every year and gives the tulips and daffs a run for their money.

      Playing checkers with the indoor plants after cleaning the capillary mats and took these pics of my seedlings before they went back under the pink lights.
      The heated greenhouse is full so trying to hose all of the following in the indoor areas with LED was a bit of a challenge. Most were grown from collected seeds.

                  I also remember April snow on the rare occasion, and even in May too, but the good thing is that it doesn't last as long as it would in the winter :smile:

                      Pots on Sandbar Patio ... I added the second from left and planted with new Hibiscus I did from seed called Ice Cream. I bought this pot some 35 years ago and it was always indoors but has a clay bottom with drainage hole. The concrete pot on the left which has overwintered a Coleus I bought about 42 years ago.
