This is the time of year when everything blue and purple seems to bloom. Rosemary, of course, is in total crazy abundance, which the bees are thrilled about. Our rosemary bushes literally hum this time of year. But also Vinca and Wooly Blue.
|This 10 year old rosemary is magnificent this time of year and hums with bees.|
|Just starting to plant this bed, got the Irises and Agapanthus in place so far. Watch this space!|
|Vines are sleeping but wildflowers are up and at 'em.|
|Vinca loves spring but hates summer around here.|
Our El Nino seems to have pooped out as far as rain goes. Thus far we've had average rain. Since we've only lived here since 2012, when this drought really got started, we've literally never seen a normal rain year here...and if February and spring are as dry as everyone is predicting, we'll go another year without seeing the rain that is "normal."
|I like Wooly Blue and Yarrow together.|
Unless, of course, this is the new normal. Let's try not to believe that until we absolutely have to.
