Garden Blogger's Bloom Day February 2012

Welcome to my blooms of the day, linked to the GBBD page at May Dreams Gardens, thanks to Carol.  On my deck, a wild geranium that self-sowed into a pot has leaves almost resembling flowers-
I was surprised to find some Hellebores that were open, always hard to photograph because of their tendency to weep-

A riot of lichens and moss on some apple trees in need of pruning-
Catkins in full bloom on some hazelnut trees-
The reliable winter bloom of heather Erica carnea-
The refreshing lemon burst of variegated  Elaeagnus x ebbingei 'Gilt Edge', which is not phased at all by cold or snow-
And finally a tiny 1" indoor bloom on my Maxillaria tenuifolia-
Well, only a little more than a month left until spring, yippee!



  1. OMG...those Geranium leaves are so pretty...I absolutely love you know what the species is?

  2. Scott- I'm not really sure which wild Geranium they are, I looked at the photos on my favorite native plant site and this seemed the closest, I see the middle leaf blade sticking straight up like these, but thought I remembered the blooms as darker and smaller-

  3. Oops, the browser did not refresh the name-

    Geranium columbinum
