Yes, it's already March, but frankly there was not much that I wanted to document in my Middle Tennessee garden in January or February.
Now, though, things have changed.
|I limbed up some of the volunteer redbuds (Cercis canadensis) this winter. It looks like they should bloom soon. The buds are very pretty.|
|The hyacinths are blooming. On warm, sunny, still days, the fragrance is very pleasant. These are the most reliable perennial bulbs that I've found for Tennessee. We order them from Brent & Becky's Bulbs.|
The basal foliage on Monarda fistulosa (wild bergamot) has looked good all winter.
|So has the Pycnanthemum incanum (hoary mountain mint) basal foliage.|
|Volunteer elderberry (Sambucus canadensis) foliage starts emerging very early -- in January!|
