Still Some Growing Going On

Still Some Growing Going On, a copyrighted post was written for my WordPress blog, Always Growing, by Jan in Covington, Louisiana


I know I have been complaining about the weather lately. Too much rain and gloom. But, yesterday was a gorgeous day. It was cool, crisp, and sunny. A lovely day, but unfortunately the rain and gloomy weather was back today. Not so much rain as in previous days, but it was cold, damp, and deary. Here’s hoping the weather people are right about the next few days – sunny, sunny, sunny.

Even with all the rain and lack of sunlight we have been having the last three weeks, there still are a few things out in the garden that are growing. The Louisiana irises are starting to grow well in preparation for springtime blooms. Also, this is the time of year that the lycoris radiata are putting out their foliage. These look a little crowded and will probably have to be divided this spring when the foliage dies down.



There even are some cannas that are putting out new leaves.


It hasn’t been that cold yet (just a few light freezes) so I guess even some of the tropicals are enjoying all the moisture after such a dry autumn and are growing.

    Nothing, and I mean nothing is growing at our place right now. Looks like we’ll get snow for Christmas.

    Your place is looking a lot better than mine. Heheh. We had a nasty little freeze that wiped out the plants that were too stubborn to go to bed when they should have. Then we got hammered by tons of rain that smashed and sogged all the frozen stuff into mush. Bleh!

    Well on that happy note…

    Jan, I wanted to wish you and your family a very warm and loving holiday. I hope that you are surrounded by friends and family and that you all have a wonderful time. Merry Christmas!!

    We went from balmy 60 -70 degree weather to an artic blast. Not sure what has been hurt by new growth from warm temps only to be frozen.
