I too can't wait for Spring and to get back out in the garden again. Being in Canada, though, I have a long wait, since we can't really plant until mid-May. That said, my spring bulbs should start to sprout in late April/early May. I have about 1,000 tulips, daffodils, crocuses, etc., and they look beautiful when they're in bloom.
I have a lot of toxic plants in my garden, mainly because my garden is primarily perennials that were planted years before I adopted my girls. That's yet another reason Muffs and Abby aren't allowed to roam free in my back yard.
Heuchera is one of my favorites and it too is a perennial, so unlike coleus, you will only need to plant it once and it will return year after year. I have about a dozen heuchera plants spread about. I don't have coleus, though, since I don't plant too many annuals.
