The weather has been so warm lately that I have started to plan for this year's planting season. This weekend with its cold wind and low tempatures reminded me that it's too early to get excited yet. But I can't keep my thoughts from being more and more on what this year's bloom season will brirng.
Last fall we divided and moved a number of daylilies to a new bed. We left plenty of space in between the clumps of daylilies to add other plants. We like to give the daylilies about three feet of space so we mark off the beds to indicate where plants can go. There are still flags visible indicating open spaces for new plants.

One of the new plants that I already have on order to arrive this spring is this echinacea. I have other echinacea in the pink and white shades but this will be my first of the dream series. This series is advertised to be superior in landscape settings so I am anxious to give them a try.
