Late February garden
Crocus 'Unfortunate Name'
The scrub jay, Aphelocoma coerulescens, is my constant, ever-squawking companion in the garden.
Favas are blooming. Perhaps there will be beans before I have to convert this planter to cucumbers.
I decided to start some lettuces. I usually don't grow greens.
Potted Hamamelis 'Diane' is flowering. You know fairegarden is the place to see this plant in its full glory.
(H. 'Primavera' is blooming now too, but no good pictures of it yet.)
Recent rains have knocked out the Hardenbergia flowers. It's winding down now anyway.
I can't quite tell whether Ceanothus 'Ray Hartman' is coming or going.
And the buckeye has substantially leafed out. Now, it's working on growing new wood.
The rest is chaos.
Look how this passionflower bud filled with rainwater.
