"Alright do not look at me that way."
Some feat for an old lady, huh?
Okay, so they are not of the human variety.
The violet leaves that I thought was going to be
written into the old garden log as " do not try this
experiment in futility ever again " are starting to
actually grow and get new leaves.
You gardeners with all these green thumbs and fingers
may think " what is the big deal" or " poor woman"
but to all of my old blogging friends who have seen my
admitted failures in botany know it is an accomplishment.
By the way, green thumbs comes from pinching off those
plants not from actually growing them. Even I can deadhead
and pinch with the best of them. LOL!
Anyway.... I am glad to finally see some growth
coming from them and I still have two more pots of
violet leaves starts that the jury is still waiting out on.
Amaryillis Picotee is putting on her finale blooms
for this winter so I wanted to share it one more time
with everyone. Besides from a few bulbs starting to
show some promise and the excitement over the violets,
well that is all I got blooming now friends.
And I know, I know, I promised to not show of the
"Ragtime " amaryllis any more this winter, but what the
heck they are in the same planter.
I want to tell all of you who are getting socked in with
the recent round of snow storms to stay safe and warm
and do not forget the birds.
We have been getting a little each day for a week
and expected to get up to six more inches today to
add to the five or six, or twelve ( it depends on which
snow drift you step off into) that we already have.
So I made sure this morning that the birds had
filled feeders and water. I also see a pot of chili in the
The Lavender is slowly disappearing
from one snow to the other and will be out of
sight after today. That will be a good thing because
it will be insulated from the cold winds then.
The yellow "Capistrano" rhododendron now has
a broken branches, poor baby.
And the leaves on all of the rhododendrons are
curling up from the cold.
Joy, maybe I should have brought this pot
indoors for the winter.
And instead of sunflowers and daisies I am now
growing snow-flowers. Anyone in the market for one?
So enjoy Picotee and....
Happy Dreams of Spring to Everyone!
