Oh, I probably shouldn't have taken two hours out of my day to do this today, but Roshani wanted to see a garden store I knew, so I took her there, and once there, you know I'm not leaving without plants. So yes, it's silly and risky to plant this early (Chicago's safe planting date is the ridiculously late May 15), but look! Here are some early spring plants: stock, nemesia, pansies, alyssum. There are so pretty. We're supposed to have a low of 30F tomorrow night; I *think* they can handle it.
And now, back to grading and class prep.
