It is so blasted cold and blustery today. It snowed for about 20 minutes this morning and then it got hazy and black looking and now the sun is shining. The weather is crazy!! I noticed yesterday that the allium, iris and sedum have peeped through the ground and some daffodils and Easter lilies but it’s calling for more winter sleet/snow by Tuesday again. I so want spring!!!
Allium and iris
Sedum peeking out from the leaves
Sedum likes the cold, I think.
Inside my house though, things are blooming so pretty and very out of season.
This is some type of begonia that is over six feet tall with very delicate blooms.
Amaryllis blooms in the spring instead of Christmas.
These two Christmas cactus bloomed last summer, two weeks before Christmas and started blooming again two weeks ago.
This is some sort of jade and normally blooms in early to late summer and it started blooming last week.
I have two shamrocks, one purple and one green, in our guest room and they’re both blooming. The purple one has pink blooms and the green one has white blooms.
It might be nasty and cold outside but I do have a little spring season in the house. It helps keep away the winter blahs!!
This is the blog for our little farm in Skagit county. Here we have Shetland sheep and Nigerian Dwarf goats. In addition we have donkeys, llamas, cattle, pigs, chickens, geese, and peafowl. The blog describes the weekly activities here.
