Well, I waited til the worst day in a week to take these. It’s gray and threatening rain. But, I’m not complaining because we need the rain. I’ve been trying not to water and to hold out until it rains. And, I’ve done pretty good. I’ve watered things in pots and things I’ve moved, but stayed away from the established plants.
But, there are a few things in bloom.
The Astilbulon (sp?)
Vibrant pink Bougainvillea that’s been in the shed all winter.
The last of the Forsythia blooms as the leaves come on. We have to keep this in a large pot. It is highly invasive.
Witch hazel in bloom.
And, the first of the orange blossoms ready to pop open.
I’m ready. My garden is in great shape for February. And, there has been something in bloom for the full 12 months of the calendar year. I got an unexpected bloom out of the Rosemary in January that completed the calendar. Now, we’ll assess anything that we lost due to the extra cold weather. But, I don’t think that’s very much.
Take care and have a great Tuesday. Lane.
