This week I managed to cut back or remove a lot of the freeze damaged plants. Unfortunately for us here, no dustings of snow are going to make these plants look picturesque. So out they go. This is the before shot of the pentas, sedums, salvias and miscellaneous. Not very attractive I think.
While cleaning up the garden I found these little cilantro plants coming up (note all the little frozen Sun Gold tomatoes that fell off the plant when I pulled it up). I sure wish cilantro would grow at the same time as my tomatoes and jalapenos so I could make some good salsa!
I have a little slice of Texas in my garden. (Well actually, probably more than a little since I buy a lot of plants from there.) But this is more symbolic. I planted some bluebonnets in a planter. I know they're a little crowded here but I'm trying this for the first time and hoping for the best. I was thinking/hoping that the good drainage from the pot would help them survive our wet winters. We'll see how they do. Last year they fizzled out in my damp ground. When the weather warms up I'll place this planting near my Texas stones.
