Bees and Buds and Blooms...Oh, My
Just checking the garden yesterday and found not only new life but some perennials still hanging on and one in bloom again.
The Iris bulbs I moved a couple of months ago have stayed strong and even the baby bulbs have pushed green leaves above ground now.
The Snapdragons are not only doing great after the freezes we have had but are putting out new growth.
The Yarrow, Lavender and Fall Asters are still green and growing. The Mealy Sage died back with the first few nights of freezing temps but they have started putting out new growth at ground level, same thing with the Lemon Balm. The Lipstick Autumn Sage never went dormant, neither did the White Autumn Sage.
Several of the Hollyhock plants are still green and hardy. There are two small Black Eyed Susan plants just laying around waiting for more sunshine.
The Fig tree is setting leaf buds too.
The mini-yellow Rose is still green and strong.
The Hyacinths started pushing up in November and are getting pretty tall. The Daffodils are starting to push up too. The Snowdrops are coming up.
The Rue and Fennel I potted up in October are still alive and the Rue is actually growing.
The really huge Tuscan Blue Rosemary is blooming again. Several stems almost covered in small blue flowers. That has brought the bees out of hiding too.
There isn't much in the way of spring type colors but there is still a lot of green around.

I don't have much outside doing anything just in my liitle plastic house.
Our Lean to hot house has some minature roses blooming not much else though.
Wow, that's a lot going on, for this time of year, Toni!
Toni I have lots starting to sprout and come into bud too!! Very strange though as none of it should be happening right now.
Fred sounds fabulous!! I'd love to meet him one day.
Oh, Jan, if you ever find you will be in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area let me know. I would love to introduce you to FRED.
I haven't done any extensive checking, but I do have irises everywhere. We dug the copper La. irises out of the ditch this fall, thought we got them all. Not. It looks as if there is as many as we dug. I don't mind they are beautiful. The only reason we moved them is because the parish kept mowing them down.
