A year in Review... Jan -March
The year Started out GREAT, then came the summer from Hell, and now things are starting to get better in Fall.
January started off with Paperwhites, 4o'clocks, Stock, Dianthus, Gaura (sadly passed away in July 09) and Cheerful Pink Gerbera Daisy
February was blooming up a storm the Amaryllis started, as well as Petunias, Calendula, Barbados Cherry, Salvia Greggii, Geranium, Daffodils, Paperwhites, Stock, Dienthus, Gerbera Daisy. The only part I don't like about winter gardening is that the rest of the yard looks bare. none of the deciduous trees have gotten their foliage yet.
March... March and April are some of my Favorite months, with May being the probably best. March is great, Fruit trees are blooming, bees are humming, sun is shining....aaaahhh you get the picture. March is great. The Lavender Lady Passion even is blooming, it always blooms. Year round. Perfect beautiful vine.
March and spring is great... So much possibilities, new plants sprouting every day...definately a rush...
