Yup, you guessed it . . .
It's beginning to feel rather spring-y following our recent cold snap,
and my spirits are rising with every degree on the thermometer.
I found the first few Periwinkle flowers today.
We've had quite a few nights with lows down into the mid 20's
which wouldn't be all that bad, except that the Camellias were already opening,
and I was afraid we might lose them all
but I'm happy to report that we still have lots of pretty flowers.
I can't grow roses worth a flip,
but I guess these beauties are the next best thing,
and the fact that they bloom so early, when I'm just desperate for color
doesn't hurt my feelings much, either.
I got a real thrill to see the first buds on my Blueberry bushes.
And in the glasshouse,
the cuttings of coleus that I took last fall are doing pretty well.
I love colorful accent foliage in the summer garden
and these will help to fill the bill.
I love Begonia foliage, too.
And, last, but not least, the 'chids.
My pride and joy.
Well, that's all I found today, not too bad for February.
I know that the weather is likely to throw a few more
winter surprises at us, but I'm loving the longer days
and I think I just might make it through the next few weeks.
I'd offer you some blueberry muffins,
but it's gonna be a while before those berries are ready to pick,
how about a nice cup of herbal tea, instead?
