For this Louisiana girl...I'm not sure a day could get much better :-) My Saints are in the Superbowl..gumbo is on the stove and I have flowers blooming in my flower garden. How could it get much better :-)
Maybe it could get better with Fleur de Lis Cookies?
It may still be winter but the sun is definitely shining on me today! Meet my new sunny faced addition to the garden. Cathy, a very special family friend..really she's family, sent us this for Christmas. Her Dad lives in Mexico so she's got a connection to the good stuff! Thanks Cathy!!
We've had really mild weather this year while the rest of the country seems to be suffering with colder and snowier than normal. Our early spring flowers seem to be a little earlier than normal as a result.
Although the heather has been in bloom for a while...its really a great plant for winter color if does well in your area.
My friend Kellie gave me a bunch of snowdrops last year and I sprinkled them throughout the yard so its been fun to see them come up.
Mini Irises are so much fun..they don't last long but they sure make an impact. This is 'Harmony'
I added this one last year and am so happy to see it return. It's called 'Katherine Hodgkin'
And 'Purple Gem'
The primroses are all starting to open up. These purple ones are usually the earliest
The pink pulmonaria open before the blue ones
The hellebores are all pretty happy at the moment
I've gotten a little variety but there are still lots more I need!!
I love the little freckles on this one
And the delicate pattern on this one
I'm off to enjoy the Super Bowl at friends house.....hope down deep you're all rooting for New Orleans - the city needs this! GEAUUUUUUUX SAINTS!
