Finally February

You know it's February when even a lowly dandelion looks lovely when the sun comes out. ~ click on any photo to enlarge ~

Hot pink isn't the easiest color to work with, but it goes great with 'galvanized.'

Yes, yet another Cerinthe picture. You really can't blame me...

The California Poppies seeded so nicely around the garden; filling in the bare spaces with soft winter green (and the promise of an orange sea in the very near future).

This is why you plant Leucadendron, it's one of the loveliest winter bloomers I know, and so undemanding.

The white sage I bought at the San Francisco Flower & Garden Show last March is going to be a sizable shrub this year; so pretty next to Grevillea 'Coastal Gem.'

One of the Hens & Chicks has gone all broody and thrown up a flower spike; love the color against the blue fencepost...

It looks like the dwarf Pomegranate is giving deciduous a miss, and is already forming some new flower buds? Nice...

See you on Bloom Day!


  1. Beautiful blooms Laura, I am green with envy. We have about 2 inches of the white stuff. Thanks for sharing....Brooke

  2. It's nice to see your garden while I'm sitting in TWO FEET of snow!! Everything is completely covered-it's nice to know it's gardening weather in some areas of the country!

  3. You're absolutely right--let's join The Dandelion Society!

  4. Dang, Interleafer! (As you would say on twitter.) You really have a way with your camera!

  5. I lovelovelove dandelions! They are too sweet... plus the leaves are incredibly healthy. Great for eating in a salad if you need to detox from too much champagne... I've been told. :)
