Snow flurries? Yes, but none of them will stick. There are too few, and the ground is still way too warm. I love tough and tiny Violas which refuse to yield to cold fronts barreling in from Kansas. These are in the front garden where I planted the purple and orange tulips. C’est manifique, oui?
This Oxalis has been a part of my shade garden for a long time. I don’t remember the cultivar. Again, I’m diggin’ the purple merging into dark green.
This teacup feeder was moved by the irrigation crew into the middle of the rose ‘Footloose.’ It looks good there surrounded by freeze dried blooms, so perhaps I’ll leave it.
‘Rio Samba’ isn’t looking her best either, but with lows in the 30s, who can blame her?
Behind ‘Annabelle’ the fence is still down from the irrigation crew. Funny what you notice when it’s framed by the camera lens. The bricks at her feet will someday be placed under the arbor at her left.
True geraniums really are a four season plant. They have beautiful, airy foliage which, except in extremely cold Oklahoma winters, stays above ground. In the fall, the same leaves turn a reddish hue. In the spring and early summer, you get small blossoms that weave around other plants like the roses. Need I say more?
Oh, yes, I do. Once a month on the the 15th, our own “Garden Blogger You’d Most Like For a Neighbor,” Carol from May Dreams Gardens hosts a little party she likes to call Bloom Day. Head on over to her place for a cup of cocoa and lots more posts. I have my mug in hand. I’ll meet you there.
