This is how it works -- the indoor plants start to bloom as the sun gets stronger, the day's longer.
Colour, like this striking "Rebecca" clematis, suddenly light up the house.
And Carol reaches immediately for the Seed Catologues. As all gardeners know, this is the time of year for dreaming and planning the coming season's gardens.
All those beautiful plants -- some advertised as being 'Deer Proof', but in our experience, not so much. The only thing we've found that IS deer proof is silk, and even that they'll tug out of the planters and drop on the ground.
Still, they won't get to eat this clematis, who's beauty is making us all think of the coming summer!
