February 2014 Bloom Day: It's Not Snowing Here.
'Rozanne' just hasn't quit in this warm dry winter.
The tulips have been a delight. They fried shortly after this photo was taken. It was near 90 both Thursday and Friday. They could take one 90 degree day, but not two.
Not many Camellias in our garden any more. Not enough shade.
Aeonium finishing up.
'Bourbon' Clematis, already. This one is always early, but mid-February is really early.
The Cerinthe started a few days ago.
The Morocco Daisy is at peak, I'd say.
This has been an excellent plant. I should divide it and spread the beauty around.
The partridge-breast Aloe, Aloe variegata, looking happier than it has in a long time. It's been in the ground since last spring and is doing well in a spot that gets no water at all. The brown foliage is due to water stress. Rain would green it right up (hint, hint).
Aloe marlothii, now past peak.
Sweet Peas are sweet...
Some roses have a heavenly fragrance...
But nothing to this nose surpasses the scent of orange blossoms. Purity itself.
Beloved gave me some gorgeous ivory roses for St. Valentine's Day. I guess they don't belong in this post, not being from the garden. But they are wonderful!
Happy Bloom Day. See more at May Dreams Garden Blog. It's not snowing everywhere. (Right? It's not snowing everywhere?)
