February Blooms ♥

Galanthus nivalis 'Snowdrops'


We haven't had much of a winter in southwest Missouri...  A couple of days with a dusting of snowflakes and a few nights of freezing temps - and that's been about the extent of our winter months. In fact, several of my perennials that usually die back and go dormant, have remained green throughout the winter...

I can't say that I've missed the cold, but I would love one "real" snowstorm before spring officially arrives. However, I'm thrilled I have a few early spring blooms starting to appear and I'm already planning what new plants to add to the kitchen garden this year.

Here's a few mid-February blooms to share...


Sure sign of spring: the crocus ♥
New this year!
Hamamelis vernalis 'Ozark Witch Hazel'
Winter blooms - Hellebores!
Esther, the Cinnamon Queen, foraging for any surviving winter bug or grub...

  5. Snowdrops are my instant favorite the first and only time i saw them. I wonder if i will ever see them again in person. I am glad that almost every blog from the temperate climates have snowdrops, crocus, hellebores and witchhazel. I already know them very well now.

  6. We've had a mild winter as well, but I still don't have anything blooming yet. I enjoyed seeing your blooms & can't wait until mine are blooming as well. Esther is beautiful.

  8. Pretty blooms! The first spring/winter blooms always cheer the soul! They would look pretty in a blanket of snow too!
