Are you having an early Spring? We are. It's the last day in January and here's a look at our azalea bush. Spring is running about three weeks early and the azalea trail is about 5 weeks away!
This is the second year in a row that inner city Houston has gone without a frost. That makes Tropical Texana a zone 10 garden in a zone 9 region of Texas.
Some flowers bloomed the entire winter like this Cape Daisy (Euryops pectinatus).
We did hover around freezing long enough to make for some interesting patterns like these on an elephant ear.
Or these beautiful purple veins on a salvia.
What's usually brown has stayed green. I could get used to being a zone 10 tropical garden.
The earliest ferns are starting to unfurl.
And the Aluminum plants are budding out.
Our only rose has red buds in the joints.
...and the kittens are waking from their long winter's nap.
Spring is always my favorite time of the year no matter the month!
Hopefully a late freeze doesn't catch us all by surprise.
All for now!
Hope you get to garden soon.
