Just in Time for Winter

I’ve said several times that we’ve had an unusually mild winter. A few weeks ago, things started blooming.

My little flowering quince that I “bonsai’d” last fall:

A few hyacinths started popping up:

And of course, violets, one of the earliest harbingers of spring:

The pink camellia has even put out a few blooms:

And my heuchera? Usually it is just sticks at this time of year. It never stopped blooming!

I bought a 15 pack of primroses from Costco and have been enjoying their cheerful color when I drive up. Its been warm but so dry that I have had to water several times already.

And of course last fall I planted 80 tulip bulbs and I think about 50 daffodil bulbs. They have all started popping up…

Just in time for winter. We have a week of weather predicted with temps in the 20’s at night and snow and ice predicted. I don’t know exactly what’s going to happen…
