So even the raised beds are popping out today with 60 degrees and sunny.
The seed germinating consistently now is.Calochortus. I have C. clavatus SSP. clavatus., C. obispoensis, . And concolor coming up strongly.
More of the landscape plantings that I'm figuring out the timing on.
Warm afternoons, foggy mornings coming.

The post title should really mean something deeper and more heartfelt then a Colchicum that usually blooms spot on February 14th is a few weeks ahead. But that's life.
Colchicum hungaricum 'Valentines Day'
We did have a good bit of hard frost for a few days in early December but generally it's been a very mild winter, drier too. I have noticed a lot that seems ahead of schedule this year so I'll probably be posting more often. I did get the kiddo out to take some actual pictures with the camera and I promise to do better at posting those. Please excuse the phone cam shots for now.
After a few months of coddling, I finally got one of the kittens to leave the comforts of home, its open season on voles again! The dig likes to think its helping but mostly it just makes giant holes in the lawn and tracks dirt in the house.
Sunny, and 51 today.
