I've been seeing little signs like a few leaf buds here, some early bloomers there. I'm so tired of winter! Bring on the warm weather!!!

During the winter I get kinda down and then when Spring comes I get so happy! I'm not really bipolar but the seasons really affect my mood! I know other gardeners must also feel this buzzing anticipation when Spring is just around the corner! :)

Really? Are you sure??? ... LOL

This winter has seemed like the longest I can remember. Maybe it's because of so many cold days when we haven't been able to get outside and play as much as usual in our oft times mild San Antonio 'winters'. I'm ready!

Finally. Seems that this winter was the longest and I moved 180 miles further south in Texas.

Interestingly, my montezuma cypress is already leafing out.

Well the first sign is usually the mountain laurels budding then blooming followed by mesquites coming into leaf. I wouldn't start pulling anything outside just yet. Bob Webster took a call where the guy had his tomatoes out.

Up here in Denton County we have about a week of nice weather.. then next Sunday we get more winter.

I've pulled my potted plants out of the garage to the driveway to water and sun them for a few days. I will be moving them all back in next Saturday.

It ain't over 'til Mother Nature sings! Everything's pretty zapped here, much looks dead. Only the Rosemary has some blooms. And the Arizona Ash has tiny green buds, but judging by the reaction (or lack of any) by the bees, it's not blooming yet. I'm feeding a sugar-water mixture to bees, because they're starving...and to keep them away from the hummingbird's feeder. Also I'm feeding a few winter butterflies, who can survive on old fruit. Bees like the fruit also.
