We’re pretty fortunate here in Northern California that we get lots of flowers blooming happily all winter long. Like these beautiful primroses. I’ve had the same plants for nearly three years, and they’re super happy.
And the Lenten Rose I got from the woman I met on one of my bike rides is slowly taking off. It’s growing a bit slower than I expected, but it’s growing!
This clump of nigella – Love in the Mist – started from ONE seed and grew and re-seeded itself, and grew some more. I’m hoping that, over the next couple of years, it takes over this whole strip of dirt.
Remember my post about my geraniums? They’re growing fast! No blooms right now, but I expect they’ll start when we get a bit more rain. The butterfly bush on this side of the bed has really perked up too, and filled in quite nicely!
This is the other butterfly bush, and it’s doing quite well too. As is the alstroemeria I transplanted from another part of the yard, and then stepped on, taking it down to only two little stems. Maybe it’ll even bloom this year! I’ve forgotten what color it is.
Oh, and I’d nearly given up on the tulip and other bulbs I planted here!
