Yesterday we had such unseasonably warm weather that I got to walk in shorts and a T. Can you believe that? Tuesday I was freezing and yesterday sweating. After my walk I planted a few Allium bulbs in an area that I am converting into a bed. The ground was very, very wet from all the rain we have had. When I finished planting I grabbed the camera to see what I might find interesting.What have we here? A daffodil with an emerging bud. Silly plant, it isn't time for you yet!
Ah, another eye catcher! I have had this ice plant in a container for the second year now and it blooms whenever it wants attention. Even my purple shamrock had a couple of blooms. Poor thing, it is still sitting outside by the back door. I'm afraid by blooming it's telling me I need to give it much needed care. Okay, okay I'm going to go get it and give it a little drink right now. Hold your thoughts, I'll be right back. Phew, that's done. Oh and by the way, as I stepped outside how could I not notice it's probably 70 degrees already out there and gorgeous!Ahhh, the evergreen foxglove. I just planted this a couple of weeks ago and can't wait to see what color it will bloom in the spring. And look at this Homestead verbena. It's just crawling all over the place. I would have thought the frost, cold and sleet would have put it to sleep for the winter but it looks pretty happy.Since we know it really is almost winter I thought I would bring us back to reality. Spring is nowhere close(boo hoo). Here are a few pretty leaves left on one of my Sweetspires. I love the color.And then we have this beauty! Or maybe not! Not sure what little creatures live in there. Do you?And to finish this post on an upward note, look at the blue sky!!! I haven't seen it in days. And to you Mr. Sunshine, thanks for making my day!
