We had the driest January on record here in the Sierra Foothills. With the dry weather we had warmer than normal days. Temperatures ranged mostly in the 60’s with some days in the 70’s. Too warm for winter! Because of the warmer weather, plants in my yard and around the forest that surround us, are blooming way too early! I thought that for today I would share some of what is blooming in my yard!
Let’s start with my roses…Here is a blossom on my wedding rose.
The helleborus do not usually open until March. Not this year!
I have a load of daffodils in the yard and of the 300 or so, many are in full bloom! Here is one getting ready to open and one that is open!
There is nothing that compares to the sweet fragrance of the Daphne. Can you smell it?
The honeybees are happy because my rosemary is in bloom. In the morning hours, the bee activity in the rosemary sounds like I am standing in a hive! I tried capturing some bees, but was unable to. However, here is blooming rosemary!
Yesterday, today, and thru Monday we will be having some much needed rain. Yesterday’s rain total here was 2.86″ of rain. We have been without power too, and are currently running off our generator!
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope that you have a splendid Saturday! Be well… ^..^
