February 2013 Garden

I picked some Washington navels for a friend.  They are sooo delicious!!! And they don’t call them navel oranges for nothing – this one is an outie for sure 🙂


More signs of life… The transplanted grass looks really sad, but on second glance, there are green shoots near the roots – yay! And the hollyhocks are spreading year after year. Looking forward to seeing them bloom.


Flowers in the garden! Pretty rosemary and lavender!


And finally, a sunflower in the grove.  I think the poor thing is a bit confused. It seems to have been managing alright until the last cold spell but seems to be struggling now to fully bloom… Perhaps if the weather improves? I’ll keep watch.
