It is the first of the month and it is time to see what is happening (or not) in the garden.
Here we go…
First thing I spot is some Larkspur seedlings popping up, the ground is frosty from our 32 degree night, but they persist in coming up.
Some Blue Star Creeper Groundcover hiding beneath some pine needles.
Volunteer Shirley poppies taking over the Japanese Maple in this pot. I should separate them out…. or not…
This photo turned out so dark, not sure why but this is a climbing rose, Dream Weaver, I do believe, and it is budding very early. This is the warm side of the house. I just hope a hard freeze does not strike and burn the new growth.
My favorite Clematis at the moment, called Warsaw Nike, it is also sprouting new growth.
My Hydrangea is loaded with fat and sassy buds.
Meet one of my ladies, this is the lone Black Copper Maran hen I ended up with after adopting 5 straight run chicks (my hope was to end up with mostly hens). Yep I had to find homes for 4 Roosters, they were lovely but noisy.
Her name is Lady Maran, she thinks she is nobility, she expects preferential treatment and though one of the youngest of the hens does not let anyone push her around. She is a pretty girl.
I also need to announce my winner of the My Memories software. I totally forgot about it. Blame it on my total absorption in getting our tax documents sorted and paperwork filled out.
The winner is Bettie, she entered via email which is very convenient since that makes it easy to contact her!
Enjoy the visit to my garden this first week of February. I will do another in a couple weeks. We shall see how things have progressed.
