Yep, it's another February yard post. And again, it's a mess out there, so you get the close up version.
It isn't giving off any of its heavenly aroma yet, but the daphne by the front porch is loaded with buds this year.
What's this called?
I picked some and brought it in the house and it smells like burnt hair.
It took me three days to figure out what in the world stunk so bad.
Ah well, it's pretty outside.
I never remember what this bulb is called either.
It has white, star-shaped flowers.
I have a ton of primroses that are trying to bloom, but the slugs are after them already.
The Autumn Joy sedum is startin' to peek out.
All my mini daffodils that I bring home from the grocery store every spring are starting to peek out.
I find a spot for them in the garden when they're done blooming inside.
Another primrose that I've had forever.
That's a lily already!
And a phlox!
You would think that another primrose picture would lessen my desire to bring more home from the grocery store.
You would think.
And my very first daffodil buds.
This clump is always the first.
And a silly lone lobelia flower, refusing to give in to the cold.
There ya have it.
The front yard in February.
Things are a happenin'.
Now I need to get out there and clean up!
