Living Easter Baskets

Easter is a week from today, and my favorite project this time of year is making living Easter baskets. I described the Easter basket project last year. Even though Easter is late this year, the baskets full of pansies, snapdragons and other cool-season flowers will give a month’s worth of color on your porch or patio.

I also noticed this week that the Easter Lily I planted after Easter last year is sprouting again. Of course, it won’t bloom for Easter, but I was surprised and pleased that it was still living. Often plants that have been forced in a greenhouse use up all their energy in that process and don’t come back again.

Enjoy the new life in the garden this week, and celebrate new life of Easter as well!
