I had planned to post about winter's effect on my corner of Katy, most particularly the front gardens. It was an absolutely perfect day here, weatherwise, so much so that I decided a small celebration was in order when I was through working for the day. I popped a split of champers and sat out back to toast the beginning of spring. As I lazed in a chair, sipping and gazing, the sun slipped lower in the sky and dusk began to fall. I thought of my friends in cooler climes who are even more winter weary than I am and who can only dream of spring's awakening. So when I'd polished off the Pommery, I grabbed my camera and took some pictures through the garden gate for all of y'all whose gardens still slumber. I hope they will give you hope for your future gardens!
MMD, it really does look different, doesn't it? I want more evergreens along the fence to give some winter interest.
MA, there are indeed blossoms! My beloved Toadflax always comes through for me.
Patsy, every day there's a new sighting of leaves or blooms!
Kathy, I know you still have a while to go before spring makes it to you. Hang in there!
Your garden is really GREEN.
Perhaps I can stop by next week after school for a visit.

HGG, the happy days were here until this morning's big chill and windstorm. Working the MG sale outside was a frigid adventure!
Pat, I hope to have lots of lovely blooms for you to see, too!
David, I'd love to see you next week. Let's pick a day when no rain is predicted!
Sharon, welcome to my corner of Katy! It's always great to meet another gardener from this part of the world!
Dee, I know you're chomping at the bit for winter to be over and done with!
