...I'm pretty bored except for Gardenias at the moment, but I expected that... The Osmanthus fragrans I bought last week should help improve things in future winters.
Patiently waiting for Witch Hazel 'Westerende' to bloom. Last year it started at the end of January and bloomed for about 4 or 5 weeks.

My cyclamen coum were doing all right but the last stretch of single digit weather slowed them down and did a little freeze drying to the blooms. My pallida witch hazel popped open its first blooms last week on an odd warm day... plus the first snowdrop opened..... no gardenias or camellias or osmanthus here :(
Awww, if it makes you feel better, lilacs won't grow here. Can't tell you how much I miss them!
Pansies and snapdragons are doing well.
Always trying to show off plants on my property, and have several witch-hazels and other plants to add color to Winter.
Just don't know how to direct people to my blog, other than to say I always find it easily by just googling in 'Bogturtle's garden'.
Just copy the URL and paste it in the optional URL link below. I love your winter garden! Interesting!

Hey, Bog, thanks for the invite. I enjoyed looking very much, and love your path! I think you get out in your yard during winter more than I do and it's nowhere near as cold here - how funny! Thanks!
I have got some things growing in my cold frame. Nothing died in last night's frost/freeze. Anyone else in my locale have anything going on? I'd love to talk with others having this same adventure!
With the high stuck at 37 I guess for today, really feels like winter. Took some pics today.
Oxalis crassipes (the clover foliage) with Narcissus. The tomato cage is to remind our dog this spot isn't for napping.
Osmanthus fragrans (fragrant Olive.) The flowers are TINY but smell incredibly good!!
Neighbors' mystery citrus.
A Camellia at Mom's, a couple miles away.
And one little Magnolia? flower.
What's going on in your winter garden?
Ruscus is cute. Pic from last week, forgot it was on my phone.
Same Camellia as above, covered in ice.
