Inconstant February, a most difficult month
February is an odd month in the maritime Pacific Northwest. The days are lengthening, and the coldest nights of winter are behind us, though we can still get frosts and occasional snow. But temperatures rarely fall below 30ÂºF, and snow does not stay long.
Quite a few flowers bloom in February Â camellias, crocuses, ÂDawnÂ viburnum, hellebores, primroses, snow drops, winter-flowering cherries and jasmine Â though they may be delayed by uncommonly cold weather. This year, the purple plums (which usually bloom from late February to late March) began to bloom this week, and early daffodils are also up.
