What A Beautiful Daydream

Too Quick To Judge

Well I thought  that since I had
had a bad experience with
the daffodils being not what was
pictured on the package, I thought these
would turn out the same. A week ago
they were bright yellow and as
the week has progressed they have indeed  turned
to orange.

Getting Some Sun


When the days are warm, today is around 60 degrees,
 these little seedlings need some
fresh air and sunshine. I will close them back up in
the evening as it still gets into the 30s and 40s. I
have to watch them closely to make sure
they don't dry out when the lids are open.

The tulip package.
The tulips below have no orange on them
at all. I'm disappointed once again. Won't
be buying anymore bulbs from the big
box store.

They are a pretty yellow. This is the second
day in bloom.

Third day in bloom.

Signs That Spring Is Coming Soon - In North Central Texas

I've never had tulips come up in February. Hopefully
they will look like the picture on the package unlike
the daffodils I purchased at the same big box store.

Tulip Daydream package. 
Flowering Quince (Chaenomeles speciosa)


Daylily Golden Prize peeking through.

Below is a link to an article a friend recommended to me
 about Keyhole Gardening. You might check it
out. Some good information for those in hot Texas.

Carrot seedlings 
I got all excited about this one - I know it
doesn't look like much - but the Sweet Pepper Crispy Hybrid 

finally sprouted overnight as well as the tomatoes. Here is a list
of all that I have winter sown so far:
Alyssum Gold Dust (Saxatile Compactum)
 
Broccoli De Cicco

Carrot Burpee's A#1 Hybrid
Hollyhock Summer Carnival Rosy Pink
 Kale Dwarf Blue
 
Leek American Flag

Lettuce Little Gem and Salad Bowl
Spinach Bloomdale and Teton Hybrid
Sweet Pepper Crispy Hybrid
 Tomato Heirloom Prudens Purple
