This is what it looked like a little while ago from our front porch. I had bare feet and was still in pj's so I didn't venture out much further.
The rest of these pictures were taken yesterday afternoon after our first snow:
One reason I love Wallflower 'Bowles Mauve' is that it is still blooming. It really blooms just about all year, but as I've learned from experience it's not that long lived. I've read that people say, "it blooms itself to death."
Hellebore - Lenten rose type.
Sarcococca blooming and smelling great!
Primroses are blooming all over the yard.
More Primroses. The only other flowers I found blooming were, of course, Pansies and Violas
The fairies don't seem to mind the snow.
Neither do the snow penguins (created by Sweet Pea yesterday afternoon)
So, are you seeing snow, flowers or both right now?
Visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens to see what others around the world have blooming now.All words and photos in this post are property of A Gardener in Progress.
