A Frozen Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day
Time for another Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day -- how time flies! The weather here in the Mid-Atlantic USA (Zone 7 DC/MD border) has turned bitterly cold these past few days, after some wonderfully balmy temps last weekend. My little pond is one again frozen over, but I still have several things in bloom -- most notably this Heather pictured here. Also in bloom are Winter Jasmine, Helleborus niger 'Josef Lemper', Pansies, and some Primrose.
'February Gold' daffodils
The 'February Gold' daffodils are higher up and more advanced than at this time any other year that I've had them. They look actually like the could bloom next week, if this cold snap breaks. Usually, they don't bloom for me until late February or early March.
