Springing ahead with spring

Even though spring is still reluctantly making an appearance, the gardening is moving forward. Some of the tomato seedlings were doing well enough to transplant them into individual pots. I also have a egg carton that has sunflower seedlings that are also doing well. Of course now I am running out of sunny windows to keep all of these plants. It won't be safe to put out the plants for a couple more weeks, especially since we are staying below the average temperatures.

I did risk it and plant the flower boxes on Friday. Since these are right next to the house and there is an overhang from the roof they should be safe unless we get a really hard freeze. I was able to get impatiens this year. Last year they were not available.

On the quilting front I did get a couple quilt tops done in April and sent them off to the long-arm quilter. The photo here is some of the "Ugly Brown Quilt" blocks (which actually turned out really cool) before they were pieced together.
