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


  1. It's cold and snowy here in Colorado, so I really enjoy seeing your signs of Spring :-)

  2. Patricia Tryon- We've been seeing the snow up there on the weather channels, does look very cold. I'm glad we haven't had any snow.

  3. I'm so jealous! I can't wait for those spring blooms!

  4. HolleyGarden - I hope you have lots when spring hits.
