This past week, the rain continued and the temps took a dip. No snow, but some freezing rain and really chilly days. It was enough to slow all the wonderful progress in my gardens.
Still, there has been some progress.
The Parrot Tulips are just starting to show their colour. I planted a bunch of these and they were all mixed, so it’s going to be fun seeing what I get.
The daffodils really do need the sun, but these little ones are trying their best. And if you look closely, there’s too flower heads on each stem. They will be wonderful when they finally open up.
My little Red Columbine is flowering right on schedule, despite the chilly days. This plant is such a trooper. By next week, I should have a picture of it just covered in a mass of red blooms.
The Spanish Thrift (Armeria), Bleeding Heart, and Lily-of-the-Valley are all showing signs of flowers to come.
And last but not least, my Winter Sow jugs are all doing great. With the exception of the Black-Eyed Susans. Those seeds didn’t take at all. But no biggie, I have plenty in the garden already. These will be ready to be transferred from their make-shift green houses to the gardens in a couple of weeks.
In the meantime, this week is supposed to be warmer, and I hope their right…
Rupert and I both need some sun and fresh air!
