    Good luck in making your shed decision. :) By the way, the little rhododendron in the pot actually looks pretty good; and the heather, don't compost it without giving it a fair shake either. It's surprising sometimes how those little green shoots appear from plants we think are long past saving. :)

    True don't give up on the heather. It always looks like that. Last year I thought we had killed ours too. Threw some out and kept a few and then realized they weren't dead. though they took a long time to leaf out. SO just put it out of the way if it's to ugly to look at.
    I just realized today that your bouganvilla we had over winters at 40 degrees are sprouting new shoots and I thought those were a goner.I was so happy!!! You never know.

    Nancy -- Thanks for reassuring me on the rhododendron. The heather is dead for sure, all the heathers in the neighborhood are in bloom and looking awesome. Mine is a brittle bunch of deadwood.

    Carole -- Really, it's dead as a doornail. But I may have VPH plant it somewhere out of the way just in case.

    At least some things are awakening. It has been a long winter hasn't it? My yard is brown also but there are beginning spots of color. I had given up on the winter aconites that I planted in the fall and today they appeared as if by magic! They made my day!

    Layanee -- I've been wondering if it's been an especially long winter or if it's just my new-found love of the outdoors/gardening that's making it feel so long.
