Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - February 2010

I think this is the consistently coldest winter we've had since I moved to Austin 9 years ago. Not surprisingly, the rosemary and a few dandelions are the only things blooming outside. Everything else is waiting for spring, which is a wise choice. Or possibly just dead; won't know for a while.

From the top: two kalanchoes are blooming indoors (one cream, one coral); broccoli doesn't mind the cold nights; got 6 of these iris from Boggy Creek Farms last fall, so I can't wait to see the blooms (supposedly apricot); I think these are showy evening primrose, which used to show up by the thousands in my yard (guess I'll find out soon).

Hi, Amy;
Love the title of your blog. I have learned a great deal of patience waiting for my Plumeria to bloom. :) Happy GBBD!

Love the kalanchoes and your broccoli just makes me wish I had planted some in the fall. It was a great oversight on my part not to do that.

The kalanchoe is lovely. I grew broccoli for the first time this year -- not as difficult as I thought it would be! Happy GBBD!

I can't wait to see your Iris in bloom. I recently watched a television program on Austin and I was impressed at how beautiful it is there.
