Week in Review

Hey, everyone. Time to wrap up another week. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Last week I wrote that my daffodils were getting ready to bloom. Sure enough, the first blossoms appeared over the weekend. Other perennials are beginning to grow, so I’ll soon be seeing more colors splashed about. Oh, and last Friday, I saw a tulip tree in full bloom.

During my morning drive to work, I often see beautiful sunrises. The other day did not disappoint.

Okay, I know I shouldn’t drive and take photos, but I sneak one in on occasion. Pretty isn’t it? But before I get long-winded, let’s have this week’s links:

  1. A beautiful sunrise. Hubby told me our daffodils are starting to peek up too. Right now we are experiencing our fifth warmest winter on record. No complaints from me. I just keep hoping March stays lamb-like the entire time, without morphing into lion mode, LOL

  2. Gorgeous sunrise, Joan! Sadly, our daffodils aren’t up yet. Oh, wait. We don’t have them here in Central Florida. 😦 Most bulbs just aren’t happy this far south. They need that cold winter dormancy period to prepare for spring again. I wish we could grow daffies and crocuses and the like, but nope. No lilacs or forsythia, either. But we make up for it by being able to garden all year around, and having lots of colorful tropicals, instead. So I guess it evens out in the end.

    Wonderful list of links, too, thanks! Sharing! πŸ™‚

    1. Daffodils, iris, tiger lilies and such do well here. Tulips, not so much. Just doesn’t get cold enough for them. Oh, I’ll have to share a photo of my lilac bush soon. There’s quite a story behind it.

      1. You definitely get a bit more winter than we do. Pretty much NEVER snows here, and it’s been years since the last time ice formed in our birdbath, too. No bulbs other than gladioli, and no spring blooming peonies, either. (I LOVED those when I lived in Pittsburgh. And grape hyacinths. All the bulbs, really.) But we have things here that I love that don’t grow much farther north, too, so it all works out. πŸ˜€

          1. Yes it does! On a trip to visit my daughter when she lived in San Diego, we visited the Anza Borrego desert, and it was amazing. Many, many interesting (and beautiful) plants, and some fantastic wildlife. Even got to see the Anza Borrego bighorn sheep, which was one of the highlights of our trip. The desert has a beauty all its own. Still, I couldn’t live full-time where there was so little green. I’m a shade-loving person who enjoys lots of big trees, and waterfalls, and ferns, and cool, misty air around me. But everyone should visit a desert at least once. So much more to it than just sand. πŸ™‚

          2. I’m with you. I wouldn’t want to live in the desert. I’ve visited Tucson, Arizona several times for work. Okay to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there. The high desert of New Mexico is different. I could handle it better.
