spring is just around the corner

spring is just around the corner

hello everyone! I just moved into a house of my own in the fall and am looking forward to gardening for the first time. I never saw my house in springtime and I am pleasantly suprised to see some easter flowers of years past peeking up through my lawn :-) I made a post before about my poor rosebush, and recieved many helpful suggestions about that as well as what to plant come spring time. I am slowly learning, and very interested and excited to grow things! I just love flowers. I live in zone 6B, and bought myself an orchid on easter. My husband laughed at me and was suprised to find the produce/flower place even sold them, because according to him "they can't grow here." Its starting to wilt, I'm afraid it might not be getting the sun it needs inside my house, but I'm also afraid its still too cold to put it outside (50s daytime/upper 30s-40s nightime) I do get a decent amount of sun late morning/afternoon in my backyard. Also, I recieved a calla lilly as a housewarming gift in January, it was in full bloom at the time (which is unusual for here, that time of year.) All of the flowers have since fallen off and I picked the yellowing leaves off of it, there are still many green. Has it gone dormant? Should I plant it in the ground, will it come back next year? Any suggestions/advice is most appreciated!
