We've had a night or two of freezes! The top of the fish pond has been iced over for the last couple of mornings. Is anything blooming for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day? Does any plant bloom in winter?
To my surprise, the answer is yes!
Scabiosa is still blooming beautifully. No damage whatsoever.
Blanketflower is still blooming, but barely. Most of the blooms were lost to the freezing temperatures.
Salvias still look beautiful.
And do you see what's behind that salvia bloom?
That's right! An iris is sending up its spring shoots!
This particular camellia is located in a protected area, and still looks good.
And not really a bloom, but the hollies have more berries on them than I've ever seen!
Of course, the pansies are blooming. Showoffs!
That's all that's blooming today in my garden, so maybe not a lot, but I am quite pleased that my garden still has blooms at all. Will my garden have blooms all year? I don't know that answer yet. Last year February was the hardest month for my garden, which is typical of Texas. So, we'll just have to wait and see what February brings!
