My clumps of yellow daffodils are mostly open. And the forsythia is starting to hint at opening. Soon my front garden will be highlighted in yellow, a most cheerful color amid the gray of early spring.

Annuals are popping up everywhere (no pun intended) for sale, and I'm now challenged to decide what to plant in the small patch of shared grass that passes for a "yard" around here. So many colors from which to choose...

James -- you happen to live in the most beautiful place for gardening at springtime. Annuals are ok, but why settle for them when perennials and herbs can give you something more exciting and visually interesting?

Of course, when I lived in DC, I got rid of all of our grass. Our postage stamp yard became a garden with wood-chipped paths circuling through it.

I miss the beautiful spring there. Sigh.
