Where did all my lovelies go and why do I always entertain in the middle of winter? We have family coming from the east coast as well as a hoard of friends and neighbors stopping by this weekend and my gardens have gone underground! Roses, daylilies, geraniums, wisteria, hydrangeas and iris are my pretties that I keep around the house for my passing-by pleasure and this is not their time of year. There are a lot of natives, grasses and Mediterranean plants that are waking up in other parts of the garden, but certainly not at their peak either. Thanks goodness for cool season annuals to indulge my craving for color, otherwise non-gardeners visiting my home will think this blog is fiction!
