With the warm temperatures popping up off and on, the garden started bursting into bloom early. Here is a look at my garden in March.
March has been an interesting month for us here in the Bay Area. The temperatures dipped down into the 40s and 50s, then we got a bunch of rain, then temperatures fluctuated back up into the 60s, 70s and even 80s. Back and forth the weather went all month.
Freesias continued their blooming show. Rose plants leafed out with some of them already full of buds. Geraniums, oxalis, ixia, daffodils, cyclamen, pink jasmine, even a tulip or two all full of leaves, buds, and flowers.
Here are a few pictures of my March garden ready for a stellar spring show.

Veggie patch doing better.
Geraniums. All my geraniums have been doing great this winter and early spring. Pelargonium, scented geraniums, ivy geraniums, variegated geraniums, and cranesbills, have all been super happy and healthy the last few months.

A couple of geranium cuttings to gift to friends.
One of my favorite spring flowers nasturtiums are getting nice and big with loads of buds and some are already blooming.
Sweet smelling pink jasmine has been blooming all March and perfuming my kitchen patio.

Mint already leafed out and ready for some herb-flavored dishes 😋🌿.
And lastly, a quick update on my little owl in the courtyard. He is still here!
Hope you had a great March.
Looking forward to an awesome April.

Beautiful flowers, your garden must be amazing. What a treasure to have an owl in your courtyard.

Thank you Basanthi! Your garden is blossoming into a beautiful back yard as well with all the attention you are giving it. 😊
Beautiful photos and a lovely garden. We used to visit Monterey every February, and sometimes wandered up into the Alexander River/Russian River area for a couple of weeks. Seeing a bit of green in midwinter helped me keep my sanity! Always loved the bright yellow mustard in the fields and vineyards.
Thank you. I too love Napa Sonoma in February when the mustard flowers are in bloom in the vineyards. Such a gorgeous sight to see.
No better proof that if you love your garden, it will love you right back. Awesome pics!
