This and That...

Well...the roller coaster weather is still here.

The last week, it’s been warm enough to sit
on the porch, in the evening. 

Even with the drizzle and fog, it’s been nice. 
And, the frogs are out and singing their songs. 

This could be some of the reason. 

We finally had some real rain. 
The runoff put some water in the pond,
behind the house. 

A lot of things are as happy as the frogs. 

The rosemary...which is picky about blooming here..
has some blooms. 


And, even an iris is blooming. 

And, Primrose Jasmine. 

And, weeds. They love the gravel...and the rain. 

Oh well...
You can’t have everything. 

We’re promised more rain. 
But, who knows WHAT the weather will do. 

Happy Gardening...

February Weather...

We've had some roller coaster weather here, lately. 

First, it's warm and spring-like. 
Then, wham!  
The bottom falls out, and it's freezing...literally. 

There are still some pansies blooming. 
They're not so crazy about the cold. 
They sometime get set back. 

But, the violas seem not to mind. 

Their smiling little faces just keep popping up.  
Sometimes they droop a bit, huddling together maybe, to conserve the heat. 
But some warm sun and they perk right up. 

We're about to have another blast of cold. 
Rain is what we need. 

At least, we're getting closer to spring, every day. 

Hope you're safe and warm. 

Happy Gardening...
