For my friends who have started their Passover

Monday, March 25, 2013

My Petunias are looking good. They survived the winter. They don't do well when we get over 100 though.

One of my rose bushes in the front yard has 4 buds, and this is what the flowers will look like. I can't wait.

Have a good Tues!

    Please, please, PLEASE! Send some Spring our way....this Winter is really getting on my last nerve...I want to start my spring planting, but we had snow, can't plant in the snow, and it's dropping below freezing tonight & tomorrow. It's April 1st and this in no joke any more... Your beautiful Petunias and Roses made me happy, but jealous too! At least my Daffodils came up, but they look so sad with snow on them. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Such is the joy of living in SoCal!!! Lucky you!! I've had to cover my little, baby lilac the last 4 nights for cold below freezing! Will probably have to cover it again the next 2 or 3 nights as well! Your roses and petunias are lovely!! (I am a bit jealous hehe) I have had daffs, crocus and grape hiacynths and anemones so far and they don't care how cold it is, apparently! My tulips are soon going to be starting to bloom and I have a half a dozen iris buds getting too fat for the temps. How nice would it have been if Spring would have come when the calendar said it did! emoticon

    Unless you have a hothouse we have not put anything in yet this year. The Daffs are in bud and a few roses but their buds are burnt with the frost.

Most years my plants are in full bloom.

Well done with yours Jeanne

    The petunias are beautiful. So is that rose.

We had snow today. But it quickly melted.
