I don't have a lot as I just moved but what I do got is: spirea (I pulled out five and left one), sedum, heurchera, rhody. I planted tulips and daffs this fall of course. In containers I have a coreopsis, butterfly weed, veronica, hardy mums and toad lilly. Oh yes I have a Martha Washington Geranium that my daughter gave me for Mother's day before I moved. I drove with it on the passenger side floor in my car from Portland to Des Moines. I am attempting to over winter it. So far so good :)

That's it for now. More to come in the Spring :)

Right now Mums are having a great time. I still have a few Zinnias and marigolds. My Plumbego didn't like the freeze we had but it will be ok. Hibiscus are still producing very well. I have been lazy so I am low on flowers I have been going toward self sufficient colorful shrubs
