The weather has been mild this year, and sadly no snow yet and I don’t expect us to get any this Winter. My garden has been neglected during the winter months and it is time to clear out the dead leaves and start planting an early Spring vegetables.
The Rosemary bush that I planted last spring has gotten a lot bigger.
The first sign of Spring in my front yard, and I have seen many Spring flowers sprouting and blooming around the neighborhood.
The broccoli is doing well and I’m thinking about moving the grapes and plant the broccoli along the fence area. I think the broccoli does well all year round because I have seen it survived during the hot and humid Summer months in Grandma’s garden.
My Brussels sprouts on the other hand look more like a tall cabbage. It is not doing well at all and it’s time to give up on it.
I was so hoping to see the sprouts but I guess I don’t have the right climate/soil condition to plant this.
It is also Crape Myrtle pruning time and Bo pruned them yesterday. We live in the city limit and the city sanitation truck will come and pick this up on a trash pickup day.
I received this cutting from a fellow blogger as a gift last year by mail and it has grown new leaves since then. I’m planning to change the pot since it has outgrown this one.
This is the orchid that my sister Bee gave me last year for doing income tax return for her. It is that time of the year again, and I can’t say I’m look forward to it.
As for the snow, I think Lee’s present must have jinxed it. She received a snowboarder as a Christmas present and it has been leaning against her bedroom door since.
