February Flowers

Yesterday was a pretty day, so I took advantage of at least a bit of it to do some yardwork. M and I gave the monkey grass a crew cut - all ready for spring...

Then once I was out there, I needed to show off some of the blooms in the yard. Of course, some of them have gotten almost buried...

The ivy is taking over this area. And the rosemary has grown a LOT since we planted it, probably 8 years ago.

Then this little dwarf iris is having to poke its way up through the leaves in the front island.

These daffodils aren't far from the iris, but, being bigger, don't seem to mind the leaves at all!

I saw the hyacinths and day lilies putting up greenery too. And the Easter lilies - but they'll be way off on Easter this year!

We're finally getting some rain today. It has rained off and on all day long. We're at a little over an inch now (and needing more). It's supposed to rain again tomorrow. I know we need it, but its a little bit dreary all day long.

Your spring is definitely farther along than ours. Out my kitchen window, I was just noticing the first daffodil starting to bloom. It wasn't open yesterday... The earliest daffs are mostly ready to open up, and our crocuses (croki?) are blooming. I'm noticing that the fruit trees and shrubs are just about ready to bloom, but not quite.

Hope the rain doesn't get too dreary!

Our spring was about at your stage last week. Of course, we had some nice warm weather to coax all the flowers out - and now we're back to rather chilly weather.

We got 2 inches of rain which was needed, but did get awfully dreary over 3 days. Today was bright, sunny, and chilly.
