New bed

New flower bed, that is. Yesterday the Chief spent a few hours working on the impatiens bed, installing a new tier to dress it up a little:

Unfortunately, it's been cold enough the past several days (overnight temps below the freezing mark) that I don't want to plant anything in that bed just yet, lest it freeze. The Chief transplanted the 2 hellebores that were already in there, but so far that's the only thing in the bed.

I'm hoping it warms up enough this weekend that I can make my annual pilgrimage to the nursery for impatiens. This year I'm also planning to put in some summer ice, and maybe try upside-down tomatoes on the deck and a few herbs (rosemary, basil, parsley, oregano?) in the kitchen.
