“February GBBD”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
Thanks to Carol of May Dreams Gardens for coming up with GBBD. This is the day (15th of the month) in which we post everything which is blooming in our gardens. Unfortunately, for the second month in a row there is very little blooming here in South Louisiana. We are no longer having the hard freezes, but light to moderate freezes are still hanging around. I have a feeling that once our temperatures get back to normal, there will be an explosion of color as the garden comes alive all at once.
It was very cold outside when I was trying to take these photos, and I was shivering, so please excuse the “quick” takes I did.
Lorepetalum is still blooming despite the cold.
Violas are still going strong.
Small narcissus are still blooming.
Only one camellia is blooming now. Others seem to be holding their buds closed till warmer weather arrives.
And, finally, while not flowers, the Christmas ardisia’s berries certainly are brightening up the place.
I know I said this last month, but I am hoping that next month will be more normal when it comes to blooming flowers.
