February Garden Bloggers Bloom Day

This will be my dreariest post since I started participating in Bloom Day last April. Since January’s bloom day, we have had about 8 days of freezing temperatures, that my folks is not enjoyed by a semi-tropical garden (in technically not a semi-tropical city).
This petunia along with about 50 other potted plants hid out on my back porch with some Christmas lights during the freeze.
Of course, the peach tree needs some chill hours in order to fruit, so it is quite happy. It has been in the ground for less than a year, so despite the flowers, I will not be letting it set fruit this year.

There may not be many flowers in the garden right now, but there is much work to be done to prepare for spring vegetable plantings, fruit tree planting, bed building, and the list goes on and on. So, here’s looking forward to March!!
