Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - February 2022
Bloom Day in February finds only a scarcity of blooms in my zone 9a southeast Texas garden. We've had an exceptionally cold (for us) and an exceptionally extended (for us) winter and it has kept many of the plants that would normally be flowering at this time of year in their long seasonal sleep. There are a few pansies about, of course.
The Carolina jessamine is blooming but even it is not as full of blooms as it usually is. It has lots of buds and when we do finally get a few warmer days, I'm sure they will be opening.
There are some wild oxalis blooms among the grass of the lawn.
The white yarrow offers its blossoms.
The pink dianthus has recently been in bloom and will be again soon. But just now, nada.
And the garden has a bit of color from my goldfish, lounging among the bubbles from the aeration by their pond's pump.
I can always depend on the "blooms" of my bottle tree!
But for now, the garden is still resting and mostly bloomless. Perhaps it will begin to wake up in March. In the meantime, happy gardening and happy Bloom Day.
