End of Month View, January 2015

At the end of each month I like to look back to see what has been happening in my garden.


Buds on the Spirea
The Spirea buds are almost ready to burst forth to cover the bush in a blanket of tiny white flowers.

Daffodils
The Daffodils are pushing their way up from a heavy cover of oak leaves
.
Hellebores
My Hellebores have a lot of new growth.  Some of the buds were killed when our temperatures dropped to 9F a few weeks ago, so I may not have as many blooms as in years past.

Privet Hedge, Ligustrum
The birds have stripped some of the berries from the Hedge, but there are still plenty left.

I think these Winter visitors are Pine Siskens.  They love Black Oil Sunflower seeds!
 What would a garden be without birdsong in it?

Have a wonderful week-end!

    1. In the southern US, especially here in Mississippi, we don't get much snow. It has certainly been cold enough to snow, but no snow yet this winter. The most snow that I remember was 9" a few years ago.
      I just visited your blog and was awed by the beautiful winter scenes, but I'm glad we don't get that much snow!

  10. You're just a little ahead of me :) My daffodils are coming up, and a few are starting to show yellow, but not the buds that you have. My roses are starting to leaf out too, and I can't wait for spring!!

    1. Hello Emily!
      Good to hear from you. Maybe we will both have daffodil blooms to show for GBBD. We've had a week of mild weather, but now it is cold again. Expected high today only in the 30s.
      Have a great day!
