New Zones


Happy Thursday!

Tomorrow is Flower Friday and I've already received a lot of photos for the day!  

The other news about gardening this week is about our climate.  "Big news for gardeners:  USDA updates planting zones" is an article out by NPR and is really interesting. 
For those of you who aren't gardeners, the planting zones help us gardeners determine what perennials to put in the garden that can withstand the winter temperatures.

The nice thing about this article is that you can plug in your location and learn how and why your zone may now be different.  Also the article gives an easy explanation of the limitations of the grow zones which is determined by cold temperatures and not hot.

Wishing you a safe and happy day!
