Welcome February


....and welcome this warm beautiful day!  Another one, two in a row, with temps around 70 degrees today.  We're very fortunate to be having such a mild winter here in NC.


I planted my potted mums (from fall) in the ground today.  I was surprised of all the green leaves already. Perfect day for puttering in the garden!

Hi Donna.... still very mild here, for Southern Ontario, but not as warm as NC. It is so nice not to have the usual cold, I'm happy to see you enjoying the sunshine and warmth in your pretty garden.

Happy "Getting out there and planting mums" day! I love these milder temps we've had (NJ) too.

It is rainy and in the 50's here on my side of NC....

Met a friend for lunch and now I am making chicken soup.

How fun to be doing a bit of planting in January. I always save my mums too and then plant them in the ground. I have a few in the garage now waiting to get planted.

Oh, what gorgeous weather!
We were at just freezing today.
Your greenery makes me jealous!

I'm ready for Spring even though we haven't had much of a winter here in the Atlanta area. I'm thrilled that we haven't had any ice storms...knock wood.
Happy February!

Wouldn't it be lovely if it stayed this way? A friend of ours said that her daffodils were starting to pop up....hope not too much ~ snow will come (and will it!) and kill them off! Your mums look great....bet the dogs are lovin' this weather!!

Wow, you planted flowers already. How lovely that you can see touches of Spring already. We have cooler temperatures today, but this has been an amazing winter here in New England.

I love that photograph of the orchid and February's calendar.

Hi Donna! Happy February! I have been loving the mild NC winter too! My daylilies are getting lovely new leaves on them and my Lenten Rose is blooming! It is wonderful!!

Have a lucky weekend Donna. Lucky you with such mild temps. Nothing quite like that here but it is in the 40's and no snow planned, a victory for sure.

Oh, I can not belie you have such warm weather and yet I am not surprised, as I recall well the lovely NC climate.;)
Enjoy it even for me, here we are in deep freeze.;)
