When it was warmer I was hoping to put in some beds and plant some local flora. Now that I don't know how long I will be in this house I am hesitant. I should do it anyway, I think, for the next person in case I decide to move closer to work.

If I may invent a saying: "when in doubt, plant". (Speaking as one who believes in the restorative powers of playing with dirt!) You could put in some self-sowing annuals which might come up in time for you to enjoy ... and do container plantings that could be portable to your new home.

Great idea. I have several plants in containers, most in my atrium. I am fretting on how to easily move the 5' Peace Lily both out of the atrium and to another home. Thank goodness Texas is so warm, we can still dig and plant this time of year.

Speaking of Texas, have you read Sunbelt Gardening by Tom Peace? It's probably the most exuberant garden book I've read. Even though it's several zones removed from my climate, I've gotten a lot out of his very creative plant combinations and seasonal planting strategies...plus the photographs are beautiful and the energy in his writing is infectious.

I have not read it, thanks for the recommendation. On the booklist it goes!
