|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...|
