Some Color For February


I hope everyone is doing well. It has turned out to be a very cold week and a much too snowy month so far for some along the eastern coast. I cannot imagine so much snow in the large cities. Where does one pile all of that snow to even get out of their houses? It is not like out here in the country side where we have loads of room to throw the white stuff. My heart goes out to them.

It is hard to find something to write about on my blog in the winter so the postings are few and far apart.
New gardening catalogs have been coming weekly in the mail.
Are you searching through them seeking  first to see the new plants offered for this year?  I always look forward to seeing the new offerings every year for spring planting.

The only blooming color in my house thus far in this new year are these gorgeous red amaryllis blooms.

I had won these in a contest and they are a gorgeous red. Just what I need to brighten up a cold and cloudy day.


Everyone have a safe weekend and stay warm if you are here in the frozen north.

Dreaming of Gardens,

That is a beautiful red, I am also dreaming of gardens. We have had some spring like weather and some plants are peeking up out of the ground.
Looks like we are in for some snow but not any thing like Massachusetts and other upper states.
Stay warm!

I've wondered the same thing about the piles of snow in the cities. Just where do they shovel it? Do they create huge banks of it down beside the streets and wait for it to melt?

Love your Hippies. Such brilliant splashes of red. Very cheery!

Wow, your amaryllis are a beautiful deep red. What joy they must give you and so cheering in these last weeks of winter.

Happy Valentine's Day ~ FlowerLady

Beautiful amaryllis! I live near Boston, so it has been crazy, especially for the reason you mention. They are spending untold amounts of money carting snow out in trucks and melting it down. They just got permission to start dumping it in the ocean (usually they don't due to fears of possible pollutants that are on the road.) It's been rather nuts! I am glad of the holiday weekend where we can just stay in our house and hibernate for awhile :)

Most of the garden blogs have been quiet this winter, mine included, so don't feel bad. I gave up and posted about my colorful kitchen! But then again, I never swore to only talk about gardens. Still, I miss it like crazy! And I think we are going to get some snow today, am I right? I've got nowhere to go, so let it snow!

Hi Lona, I've been away far too long. Well, I'll take that back, I've been home, but it was a weird winter, to say the least. I can't believe it's spring already, my life is flying by. So much to do, so little time and truth be told, not much energy lately. But Happy Spring anyway!
