Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - February 2019
Does one daffodil make a spring?
Maybe if you add a few narcissi.
And some sweet little leucojum, aka snowflakes - the only kind of snowflakes we'll see here this winter.
The pansies have been blooming since fall and are well past their prime.
As are the violas.
The Turk's cap also has been blooming all winter, but, in the absence of a freeze, it blooms 12 months of the year in my garden.
A few gerberas are still going.
They just bloom on and on and on...
The Carolina jessamine is not in full flower yet but it's getting there.
The feverfew, too, has been in bloom for quite a while and shows no sign of waning.
Salvia greggii (autumn sage) is another native plant that blooms almost year-round here.
The white yarrow continues to bloom by the goldfish pond.
'Peggy Martin' rose has already been flowering for more than a month.
Purple oxalis is at its best in winter here.
The loropetalum is a mass of fuchsia blossoms now.
I do love its fringy little blooms.
Thank you for stopping by my zone 9a garden in Southeast Texas this month. Spring is just around the corner here and on most days this week, it has felt as if it had already arrived.
This month, our host, Carol of May Dreams Gardens, begins her thirteenth year of hosting this monthly meme. Amazing! Twelve years of bringing together gardeners from around the world to share their gardens. Thank you, Carol. I'm looking forward to the next twelve years.
Happy Bloom Day!
