February in the Garden, 2019

February has had crazy wild weather here in the Bay Area.  Cold, rain, and even snow blanketed our hills and mountains this February.  We haven’t had snow in our lower elevations in over 9 years! We went from cold temperatures in the 30s to warmer temperatures in the 60s all in just a few weeks.  Despite the ups and down in temperature the garden did really well. Lots and lots of rainy and stormy days in February made for our gardens not complaining one bit. Here is a look at how the garden faired in February.

My azaleas were blooming away happily and I even see color on a few freesia bulbs.

Daffodils have started blooming. These are the first swaths to show color. Looking forward to a stellar daffodil bloom this year.

  1. Dolly, Your Garden is always in Full Bloom , Rain or Shine . My heart missed a Beat when i saw the Golden Daffodils bringing to mind William Wordsworth’s poem on “daffodils” … Not to speak of Brink Pink Half open Tulips .. you plant the Bulbs n Winter and they bloom in Spring … Much like “Love ” … Ty for such an uplifting Imagery of the Flowers in Your Garden
