Signs of Spring

Betsy got the camera out and took some early spring photos on Saturday. Because of an unseasonably cold winter, we are a good 3-4 weeks behind the usual schedule down here in North Carolina. The plants are pretty confused. They did respond to a couple of dry, windy, sunny, upper 40 degrees days.

Here’s what’s up in the garden.

The Veronica reopens:

Hellebore. (Great name for a plant...)


Crocus of various flavors:



Rosemary. It turns into a good-sized woody shrub around here. This one has been blooming all winter.

Coming soon: lots o' daffodils! But it's snowing outside right now...

Spiny gum balls. Ever-present. A new batch rains down every February.
