Here's a little of what's going on around here this January. The Hellebores have begun. Here's the first one:
Some of the Daphnes are all budded up.
The Sweet Box has lots of buds and also berries:
Earning their name of Hardy Cyclamen (I don't think these are all the way settled in, actually...it make take them a year or so more...my others are keeping their flowers under wraps for now):
Sometimes, I can smell these lemon blooms as I come down my basement steps. I'm happy to say that to this point, the Meyer Lemon is doing well (unlike last year when I left it to its own devices...which meant I was lucky it was still alive)...unfortunately, I don't have any bees in the basement.
We had some snow (all gone now)...I can't get over how different my front yard looks sans pear tree. That hump behind the bench is some of the mulch from it that I spread out a bit.
More Chanticleer upcoming!
