However, there was plenty of evidence of the rain left behind in the garden.
|Coleonema album weighed down by rain|
Although rain signifies winter here in southern California, signs of spring are everywhere. The spring bulbs have started to bloom.
|The first Freesias, like this yellow one, are blooming|
|Muscari armeniacum (aka Grape Hyacinth)|
The ornamental pear tree is in full bloom.
The Agapanthus have continued to pop up at intervals.
And now the Acanthus mollis has put up its first bloom spike.
The hummingbirds are very active in the garden and at my feeder.
But the squirrel never ventures far from the birdfeeders (at least when he's not attacking my outdoor pillows).
|Do you think he cares how he looks from behind?|
I hope those of you hunkered down under ice and snow see signs of spring in your garden very soon!
