Last blooms of 2012
Though it's dead of winter there are some blooms this weekend in my garden. The days are slowly getting longer, daffodils are breaking the surface, and the garden will slowly awaken in the weeks ahead. I did get the tulips I had been keeping in the refrigerator planted this week. The late Fall weather this year was cooler than normal so I could have planted them in November. Spent some time today going through seed catalogues deciding what to order. Besides my "must haves", I always find a couple of new flowers that I want to try in my garden. I'm still making up my mind so will share the list later. Here is what was blooming this afternoon.
