Stopping By………

The Sun Defined

The Sun Defined

Winter stopped by for another brief visit yesterday. So, I went out in the yard before all of the snow melted off in the bright sun.
Above is a Century Plant (Agave paryii), so named because it only blooms once per century; however, that isn’t really true…it simply takes a very long time to bloom and only seems like a century!

And although crocuses are a “sign of Spring”…don’t be fooled, they pop up through snow, no matter how far off it actually is. Here in Colorado, March is actually the heaviest month for snow…and I am really looking forward to that, simply because my garden needs moisture so badly!

These little lookers are about 3″ tall and the lavender tips are absolutely gorgeous. I planted these all around the base of my 2 crab apples and not far away are some dwarf Irises. When the Irises pop open, you can be assured that they will be posted here!

  1. Crocuses already? They are a couple of weeks ahead of us here – sigh…

    Nice and interesting shots from your garden and I hope it gets the moisture it needs.

    All my best,
    Staffan

  2. I really like the sun defined one with all the shadows
