Jasminum sambac 'Maid of Orleans' has been either in bud or bloom in the basement all winter - this bloom day, just buds. The first two years I had this plant it stayed very compact. Over the winter it's gone nuts, sprawling all over everything. A bamboo tee pee solved the problem. for now anyway.
The pelargoniums have been blooming all winter in the basement. They're messy, so I keep removing the budding stems. They respond by sending out more buds.
I took some cuttings from them over the winter. These blooms are from a cutting.
There's lots of new growth in the garden. Since I never seem to get around to planting early-blooming bulbs in the fall, there are no blooms yet. There is a hellebore budding on this frosty March morning.
There are signs of life all over the garden. It won't be long now! Spring is almost here!
