Hope you all had a great New Year. Mine was quiet. I'm ready for a brand new year too. A new year for me means a fresh start and I'm all for that. I'm gonna say I expect 2012 to be a year of changes. I just hope they will all be good ones.
I'm running behind on my blogging. I have a mouse I can control now and that makes all the difference in working this laptop.
On New Years Eve I took pictures in the gardens and fully intended to make a post then but I just didn't get around to it. I hope you'll let me share a couple of blooms with you.
Things are looking pretty straggly in the gardens but when I got to looking I found some signs of life in there. I have to say that I'm not a great gardener during November and December. But now that January is here I'm ready to get the ball rolling. Went shopping today too. I'll show you what I got in just a minute.
Dianthus is in bloom.
I thought this beauty died on me after I moved in Sept (I think). Darla you told me it would spring back.
I can't believe I have parsley still doing so good. It looks better than it did in the summer.
The osteoporum has new growth all over and the blooms just keep coming.
The geraniums had a nice bloom on it but sadly it faded with the most recent cold snap we had 3 days ago.
And the pentas have also given to the cold. Just don't look at all that dead stuff on it. Just don't even look.
Daffodils are popping up. Yeah. Anybody think we're gonna have an early spring. I do.
Hyancynths are one of my favorite blooms. I'm looking forward to these babies.
I don't know what this is but I can't delete. I hate that because I've got to move on and you do to.
I am so pleased I still have these blue babies blooming.
I was surprised to find this one sprouting new growth. Of course it's gone with the cold now. I have a couple of layers of leaves in my gardens. I tend to think it adds a layer of protection to the roots of some plants.
Yes that's a little bloom on it too.
Ooops. Blurrrryyy. Azalea in bloom.
I love clouds. I probably have said that before but anyway I caught a couple sky pictures today.
Oh - I told ya I went shopping. I'm getting in the mood for some more pretties in the garden. I also have my seed starting stuff. Don't yet know how I'm gonna do this since I don't have a green house. I'm thinking a grow light.
Hope I didn't bore ya too much.
