End of the Month Garden Review – February 2015

So it is the end of February, dead of winter, and the expectation is there will be nothing of value to show in my flower and vegetable gardens. Not only is that true, but my gardens are mostly insulated with multiple inches of the white stuff. For a person that finds such a great serum from the flower and vegetable growing process this time of year rings so hollow. The only fun I have flower wise is watching my indoor plants go through their changes.

Behind this bench and chair there is usually a bed of cascading wave petunias in the summer.

This is a massive clump of Japanese Iris that will be on their way back to life as soon as the weather breaks.

A Montana Ruebens Clematis that is always very gorgeous in the summer, but for now is just a dormant set of twigs.

    I’m sure it won’t be long before things start to emerge once the son melts. At least your plants are protected by the snow here we have damp and cold gusty winds which are shredding plants
