February in Kansas is a time of transition, teasing us with the occasional 70 degree day, then plunging back into the depths of winter. For some Kansans (mostly teens and twenty-somethings), the warm weather brings a premature debut of camisoles, flip flops and shorts. For others, it makes us want to work the bare soil more than to show some bare skin.
I mull over the latest and greatest offerings from the seed companies and am tempted by the amazing blue color of a Himalayan Blue Poppy, but since it is as inappropriate in Kansas as flip flops in February, I settle for new varieties of Asiatic Lilies, among other things. After placing my online order, I wait patiently for warmer weather and the first few spring blooms poking up from the soil.
I look forward to coming out of winter hibernation by dressing in the lighter, brighter colors of spring and occasional florals. This year, spring fever will be even harder to bear, since PC's spring catalog won't be available until mid March. In the meantime, here is a glimpse of some of PC's springy floral offerings:
If you are as impatient as I am, here are a few spring flowers that are available now:
Peony Bed Cardigan
Floating Lotus Cardigan
Floral Lacework Tunic
Handknit Jolie Cardigan
