January Warmth

We are having some crazy weather this year. I think everyone is experiencing warmer than usual conditions. Here it is warm and sticky. Worked in the gardens some clipping and triming. Probably shouldn't have done that but it was so nice and things are greening up already.

Look at the hyancinths. Way too early for this.
My hyancinths are not gonna get any height on it. This little thing is only a couple inches from the ground.



Hope you all have a great day and wonderful week. I'll be coming by to visit.

We went out today and the car reading outside was 14C (57F) very odd for January!! Diane

Mine are popping up there to bloom also, Becca. I have a daffodil 8" high. As I write this it just started to snow ... really a wild weather winter.

Have a beautiful week ~
TTFN ~

Mild but wet here at the moment.
Lovely shots.

Up here in Canada it should be -20c (-4F) but it's actually 3c (37F).

Very strange to see all the squirrels that should be hibernating out and about. Along with bird species that should have moved on to warmer climates still hanging about.

It's been uncommonly warm here too. No rain or snow. Wierdorama!

Hope you aren'r overdoing it! Take care...Hugs

I planted some hyacinths too, in a pot for Christmas and just like yours, they started flowering almost before they were up out of the earth. It's very warm here too in Tennessee.

It was warm yesterday down here and I was sweating. That's hard to believe for January, but some years it is like that.

I will get my needle books in my Etsy shop in the next few days, I hope.

Yes, DH did paint the floor of the caravan. He spaced and traced out the tile shapes, then painted them in stages as it was exacting and somewhat grueling work.

Enjoy the beauty that is popping up all around you.

Warm for sure. I saw crocus leaves today. Way too early for them here.

I can't believe you have hyacinths coming up already. But, we have all been experiencing warmer weather.

It has been warmer than usual here too, but not warm enough for flowers. Makes me have spring fever. :)

Hi There, YES---we are all having weird weather this winter. We haven't had much winter here at all YET.

Our roses are supposed to go dormant in winter.. So far this winter, they are still trying to grow... Everything is confused!!!!

Love your new blog look...So pretty!!!!!
Hugs,
Betsy

Nice weather over here, blooms everywhere.

Just noticed my hyacinths poking out of the soil yesterday. It's going to rain and then turn cold so hopefullythe plants will be fine here...hard not to prune when the weather is warm though.

they will still smell good..even if they are short! The weather is all out of whack:(

HolleyGarden said...

Mine are just starting to peek out - but are not as big as yours! Isn't it odd to see those in January!!!

Lona said...

Well for goodness sake. Your hyacinths are really budding out. Mine are coming up too but nothing like yours. I bet they smell heavenly.
