February is not generally a busy gardening month. Usually I just content myself with indoor blooms this time of year. I saw this little geranium seedling popping up in October, so I rescued it by planting it in a pot to spend the winter indoors. See how it rewarded me? Such a tall bloom for such a tiny little plant. That's not even a regular size coffee cup, it's just a mini one!
I could show you all kinds of little plant babies popping up out there, but most of them are just little green specks. This one really caught my eye though, and I'm not even sure what it is. I think it's an agastache of some kind.

It's Valentine's Day, and our hearts turn to love. Now I know the day is meant for showing love to our family and friends. But I thought I'd show a little love to my garden! 2011 was another beautiful year in the garden I love.

This continues to be a mild winter, much to my delight. But the funny thing is, I think I've spent less time outdoors than I usually do in harsher winters. Mostly it's because we have had so much rain, and being outdoors hasn't been very enjoyable. The only winter posts I've put up here on my blog have been focused on indoor plants since we haven't had any pretty snowfalls to highlight. But occasionally, we get a frosty but sunny start to the day. The angelina sedum has been photographed many times this winter, as it continues to delight. Nothing else I have in my winter garden is as sunny and bright as this plant. Note to self, plant more of it!
Arborvitae are crystallized.

Personally, I think yellow is anything but mellow. It's such a lively, vibrant color. It automatically makes me think of sunshine. I love yellow! The only trouble is, yellow is hard to come by in winter, even a winter as mild as this one. If it was April, I'd have these yellow species tulips in bloom.
