|Crocus 'Romance' (Just planted bulbs in January!)|
I took photos daily, or at least several times a week, throughout the month of February, so it's all 'on record' if I want to share anything. I'm not sure what the reason for lack of blogging was, but it could have been the fact that most of my blooming plants were being completely destroyed by squirrels. It was kind of depressing, to say the least!
Anyway, I just noticed today that the Candytuft is blooming...it seems early to me:
|Iberis sempervirins (Candytuft)|
|Pulmonaria 'Raspberry Splash' (Lungwort)|
|Helleborus hybridus (Pine Knot Strain)|
(The one below had part of the flower eaten by
squirrels but you can still see the pretty interior as
it opened up).
|Helleborus hybridus 'Phoenix'|
Corsican Hellebore was the only plant that wasn't touched by the squirrels:
|Helleborus x nigercors 'Green Corsican'|
I have a lot more Hellobores but couldn't show any blooms because either they bloomed and were destroyed, or they haven't bloomed yet. As I said earlier, I have another post 'brewing' about that issue.
I think it's early for Hepatica, compared to last year:
|Hepatica nobilis (Liverwort)|
|Hepatica acutiloba (Sharp-lobed Hepatica) - pink|
Same with Jacob's Ladder...it is much earlier than last year!:
|Polymonium reptans 'Jacob's Ladder'|
I just planted these Iris reticulata bulbs in January...so not sure if they are 'early' or not. They began blooming over a week ago:

I had to show this guy...usually I'd pull him out but in February, he was welcome!
|Dandelion (so-called 'weed' but adds color!)|
|Veronica repens (ground creeper)|
|Pieris japonica (Andromeda) 'Valley Valentine'|
|Vinca Minor (*An 'invasive' vine but I keep it contained, although I wouldn't mind getting rid of|
it entirely! I do admire the blue flowers, though)
|Ilex Berries (Holly Tree) -- just because it's pretty against the blue sky|
