|Irises are beginning to bloom|
This month last year, I had no blooms to show for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day except a pitiful little frozen camellia bud. I decided I wanted to work on having blooms in my garden all year round. And so, I purchased more camellias and added some plants I felt might bloom in the winter months.
And I have blooms!
|Just a few muscari (grape hyacinth)|
Of course, it's not my doing, really. We have had a couple of freezing nights, but no extended freezing weather this year. If we had, this would be an entirely different story.
Still, it's fun to say I've had blooms every month this year. We'll have to wait and see if I'll be as lucky in February of next year!
|Some kind of violet - I've had these for years!|
And that's not all my blooms, either! Wahoo! Bring on March! I'm ready!
On another note, I have to brag just a bit on my sweet husband and his Valentine's day present to me. It was a picnic he had put together himself. What a lovely, romantic Valentine's day present! I know some women would prefer going to a five-star restaurant, but not this gal!
Thanks, honey, I loved it, and I love you!
