Any ideas on plant combinations for flowers in containers? I’ve always been fond of annual blue salvias, with perhaps a trailing red petunia if I come across one, and double-flowered marigolds. Pretty basic and colorful all summer long, but it sure would be fun to do something new. I have a couple strawberry pots, a whiskey barrel, and a long window box to fill.

I have to tell a modest family story about baseball, the one sport connected to the earth’s circling of the sun (it begins with Spring Training and ends with a Harvest Festival). Maybe it begins in T.S. Eliot’s cruelest month, but as George Carlin reminds us, it is the sweetest sport: “In baseball, the object is to go home and to be safe. I hope I’ll be safe at home.”

Spring has sprung here at Chez Siberia and I do mean sprung as in “if you stopped to tie your shoes, you missed the transition.’

The sun is shining; the sky is blue, the snow is filthy and I think it might just be moving toward spring. Aunt Toby is in Upstate New York. Do I wait for the sun to do all of its work, melt the snow, warm up the ground and then maybe I can plant some cool weather stuff?

Even as the snow and cold rain fall, I can’t help but start thinking of spring.
