Here in Chicago today….

It’s cold, snowing and icy.  This is the sort of day that beckons me to think about spring/summer. What really helps me is browsing thru garden catalogs (catalogues). Planning this years selection of plants that will attract hummingbirds and butterflies to my yard.  Have a look at some of my favs:

Best Flowers for Butterflies and Hummingbirds

Red-Hot-Poker plant. Drought resistant(good thing!!!) and attracts hummingbirds. :) LOVE them!!

Hmmm.  It’s working, I feel better already.  Just one thing bothers me… So many plants to buy, so little space to plant them.  Must look up vertical gardening.
