Nice to welcome the new year in with a flower. The first of the year is this winter blooming species from the Peloponnese in Greece. Here is a all the information you will need on this one: http://www.preslia.cz/P014CPer.pdf
A fun little winter bloomer adding some cheer to the grey, sodden, overcast days of deep winter.
Mostly back to normal Oregon weather, sunny, rainy, dry, drippy, cloudy, clear all that in the span of an hour.

The rock garden blanketed in snow.
So it was 12 degrees when I left this morning. Turning out to be a crazy cold winter so far.
The bulb frames would probably benefit from some more snow cover.
I promise some flower pictures soon, I saw a few crocus buds wanting to pop out as I was putting frost blankets on the greenhouse pots.
20 degrees and sunny now at noon with freezing rain, sleet and snow in the forecast for the weekend.

Woke up to a new year with a dusting of snow. Chilly end to the old and a frosty start the new.
The rock garden alpines seem to be loving this extra cold weather year we seem to be having.
I did manage to get some seeds down and cheers to a productive and prosperous new year.
32 degrees with an occasional snow flurry today.
Happy New Year!
