Call me CRAZY but I really liked the challenge of having a daily blog post, especially if it involves something as simple as just posting a picture or a quick tip. Since my blog has been somewhat of a virtual diary for the last few years rather than a serious attempt to “cultivate a culture of gardening”, I’ve decided to go back to my roots (ha-ha) and post a daily picture, tip, or thought on gardening for the next year.
And most of that travel time will put me in other great garden areas that I can post about.
But I will start with what is commanding my attention today – January 1, 2016. Check out these winter blooming camellias, with the flowering quince blooming in the background.
Flowering quince Chaenomeles typically is my harbinger of spring in mid-February but is in mid bloom today. With temps going in the mid-twenties for the next week, this plant is going to be confused.
