There's a few flowers out. The weather has been lovely, warmish days, good for weeding and getting soil ready for veggies.
Starting by the back door, I'll show you around the garden:
In the round bed behind the house, there is a calendula, which has been there all winter. It's in a sorry state, but still putting out flowers. I've left it be, just for its spunk at pulling through the cold weather.
Next to it is the only blooming daffodil at the moment. All other daffs are still buds.
A candytuft has been sitting in a pot by the back door all winter, trying very hard to bloom. I think it might just succeed soon.
There was a zaluzianskia blooming too, but the photo didn't quite work out.
Going onward to towards the back of the garden, snowdrops poke through the grass by the witch hazel. I have planted snowdrops everywhere, here and there. I love them.
Across the stepping stone path, the corkscrew hazel is starting to grow its catkins, there is the first little group in the center of the photo.
Next to that is the little pussy willow, Salix Caprea. One little catkin is just beginning to show.
In front of my shed, there are wallflowers beginning to bloom.
Now we move around the house towards the front. There are little daisies here and there in the grass, but the photos just didn't come out well. There was also one feverfew flower in a stray plant by the side door, that also came out fuzzy.
In the front garden, the euphorbia is looking spendid.
In front of that, the heather is still blooming since the beginning of winter.
Going further to the front, Pippin is helping me find the flowers.. oh, there's a daffodil bud near him.
The little primulas look eaten, must be slugs around. There was a couple violas nearby, but they looked even worse.
Ah, here's a daisy, pretending to be an important flower in my front flower bed. I hate to weed it away, so it will stay awile.
Now we go back around to my veggie garden. The kale was blooming little yellow flowers, but the photo was fuzzy.
Snowdrops bloom in the freshly weeded strawberry bed.
Inside, the Christmas cactus is still putting out the odd flower or two. The thunbergia is also still blooming a few flowers, but looking very ragged. Time to trim that soon.
There are flowers blooming all over the world today, you can see some of them on Carol's blog at May Dreams Garden, for February Bloomday.
