No joy on pansies yet -- the local hardware store was sold out by yesterday morning. I think I'll try a dawn raid on the Walmart / Home Depot tomorrow.

Meanwhile, I decided it was past time to do something about the Ghost of Christmas Past in my window boxes. Nature did a bit Herself -- about 80% the willow wands I stuck in the back of the boxes for the twiggy effect have rooted and are putting out tender green leaves. Yay! So I pulled out all the dead greenery and replaced it with new greenery in the form of a bunch of euonymus cuttings from Roy's Massacre of the Dying Bush out back. One of our eonymus now gets too much shade and has totally collapsed. He also pruned the other one, something it really needed. The departed euonymous has left a hole just about exactly the size of a pot of hostas that would be happier with a more permanent dwelling place.

While I was messing about out front, I made other discoveries:

And now the North Forty (aka the back yard) is calling me.
