What a ride its been! I looked so forward to our first Fall and Winter in the farmhouse and have enjoyed it immensely. I am a fan of Fall and even Winter. Yes, I know I am sick, sick, sick, but I am already waiting expectantly for Fall of 2011.
I took the opportunity late yesterday afternoon after work to take a walk around the yard to see what changes I could find and was pleasantly surprised to find a few blooms already.
This fuchsia colored quince bush is ushering in Spring already. What a tough plant! After all its been through, it still has these delicate little blossoms on it.
Its hard to believe its been a year since I took an identical picture of these daffodils when we first saw the farmhouse in February 2010.
After all, it is still February, so I moved inside and found some more traces of winter. Here are my Valentine flowers from my hubby:
Would you believe this is a Christmas Cactus and its blooming again!
It seems that many of you who are tired of Winter aren't the only ones. This tendril of a Mandevilla that is spending its Winter in the window of our dining room is trying so hard to get outside!!!
