Moving Further...

The weather here has been more like May than February, with highs in the mid-seventies.  That's projected to change late tomorrow, with weather more appropriate to late March.

Still, it was time to finish the last of the Salvia splendens "Flare" and begin the Profusion zinnia.  I'm growing both yellow and flame (almost red when they open, turning a reddish-orange when mature).

I had tried the cherry last year, but the flowers tended to bleach too much in the gardens.  Some ended up a pale rose, which isn't nearly dominant enough with the other plants.
