|Vibernum tinus Spring Bouquet|
The nights are still a bit colder than normal but I am not constantly concerned that it will freeze and, in any case, I have used up my quota of worrying and unless something unusual happens I am not trekking out to the fountain with hot water at midnight again until the Christmas lights are back up. Yes, I'm a weather wimp and have only so much patience with extremes.
|Loropetalum chinense Sizzling Pink|
Here and there are argyranthemum, dianthus, iberis, and allysum also adding, for the most part, yellow and white exclamation points to the edges of the borders.
|Fava Broad Windsor|
The favas are a bit short this year. Perhaps they will continue to grow but they are beginning to bloom and I think the blooms are almost reason enough to grow them. I do so love favas and pasta though so even if the blooms weren't lovely they would still have a place in the winter vegetable garden.
