Another good week for gardening! How wonderful is that? It is still quite cold but the sun has been shining and as long as you are in the sun it feels quite warm. This morning I was pruning the wisteria on the pergola around the terrace. It takes a long time to prune back every side branch but at least now I am past the stage of having to tie new branches into the structure.
There is noticeable growth on the slope, the Eschscholzia californica (Californian poppies) are now quite large and I am thinking about looking for buds!
The prostrate rosemary continues to please the bees by producing more and more flower.
Look at the colour of the sky, no wonder I’m feeling energised.
I am ready to say goodbye to the dead stems of the grasses (mostly Panicum) and the Perovskia; it is time to prepare the garden for spring and spring bulbs which are beginning to push through.
Sadly rain is forecast for the weekend but in tiny amounts so that often it doesn’t actually rain at all but there will be some cloud.
What is the weather doing where you are? I know that North America has had more snow and very cold temperatures; I hope it improves soon for you.
Sunday is the 22nd and Garden bloggers Foliage day, I hope you will be able to join in this monthly celebration of foliage. Just post linking to my post and leave a comment with your link. I look forward to seeing what your ‘take’ on foliage will be this month.
