Not Much of a Leap

It should be March 1st. I am glad it is not because once more I get to say "it's only February" when I am talking about what has been happening outside.

There has been a whole lot of this going on....

..and this.

These are the roses. THE ROSES. In February. It's crazy.

The daffodils are also getting ready to do their thing. Most people's have already bloomed. My yard is shadier than most so we get a later start on some things.

The Vinca has been climbing the walls and blooming since late January.

These are my Hostas getting ready to poke up. I hope the deer don't see them.

The Hydrangea is already in bud also.

This is another crocus patch in the woods. I know just how they feel. This warm winter has made me very happy too. If you can't have snow, which we rarely have, you might as well just skip it.

Here is today's haul from the garden. This is not an early spring crop-but still last summer's! It was just cold enough to keep the bugs away but not cold enough to do any damage to the kale or the chard. You can't beat that.


  1. So jealous - we got freezing rain and grey clouds all day

  2. I hate to be a downer but this summer is going to be absolutely MISERABLE!!!
