A Garden Bouquet For Valentine’s Day

Spring isn’t exactly in bloom here in Austin, but we still have plenty of buds that are brightening up our yard this February.  In honor of the flower-givingest day on the calendar (well, maybe Mother’s day would have something to say about that) I bring you the bouquet of buds we have opening up this winter/spring.

    I’m amazed by how many blossoms have survived winter. The only ones I have are fall planted pansies, violas, alyssum and such. I do have some lovely chard and kale. Narcissus and species tulips are emerging.

  2. Gorgeous! I wish we had more buds, but it’s been too cold. 😦 We’ll get to planting soon! 🙂

    No plants at our new abode, but the dirt work for the front yard was leveled today in preparation for many hours of flower panting.
