Okay then, a new year and the first Fertilizer Friday of the year.
The problem is that here in the usually frozen north there is nothing happening in the garden…… or is there?
The snow has been melting since it is a balmy 58 degrees outside.
So I grabbed the new Canon compact camera that my daughter gave me for Christmas to carry in my purse and took it out to try to find what was under the snow. Needless to say me and the new little camera are not speaking because everything was a little out of focus. Never fear I will get the hang of it someday in the future and we will be great friends.
Anyhow I spotted the Feverfew in the side bed was still green. I just planted it this fall so I am wondering if it stays green throughout the winter?
The Ajuga “Burgundy Glow” is a little smashed from the snow but the foliage at least has some color. Do you see the Daffodils and Grape hyacinths trying to come up? The mild winter has them all confused but I like it because I just hate winter and the cold.
Lo and behold I even spotted a hyacinth trying to come up where the sun hits the bed here in the mornings. Weird happenings here in the garden in the hills. Some of the bulbs think it is spring already. I could only wish it so.
This one I am proud as punch about… the Hellebores have buds for the first time since I planted them. I am holding my breath hoping that nothing happens to them before this bud opens.
I even saw some of the rose bushes were trying to bud again.
Just not right folks!
Other than these few everything else is pretty well dormant for the winter.
Since it was a beautiful day I got the oak leaves cleaned out of the pond for the ??? time so far and I got the salt washed off of the car and got her all cleaned up.
I am trying to get together my seed orders but it has been hard to make up my mind about what I want to start indoors this winter. I know you all do not have that problem. No doubt I will have to set myself down and tell myself to “focus Lona” and “get r’ done”.
Thanks to our gal Glenda at “Tootsie Time” for sponsoring Fertilizer Friday to flaunt these many (2) blooms. LOL! Join us in Flaunting Your Flowers.
