Spring, quickly

I missed a month of spring in the week or so I was working close to 24/7 on the titan arum blooming at work. But I did have a few minutes to shoot some pix as the early spring bloomers rushed by with the unseasonably warm weather.

Don’t know how this pulmonaria hitched a ride into the garden. Ugly foliage but great flowers.

Pussy willows were in their prime one of the few days I was home early enough to take pix.

January flowers

This is the closest I’ve every come to having real bloom pictures in January. With highs around 50F later this week, I expect I may actually have full blooms. Having a Zone 7 winter does have an upside. In a ‘normal’ winter, I’d expect this kind of display about a month from now.

New Year’s pix

Winter is finally supposed to hit tonight. (Low’s ~10F, 6 to 10 inches of snow, high ~15F tomorrow.) But New Year’s was sunny and pushing 50F. I even harvested a little lettuce.

Pulmonaria is still green (mostly).

The stiff breezes got the seedheads all pointing the same way.
