Warm and wet

It's the middle of winter and the yard is a mess. That's normal. Winter winds bring down a lot of small branches that litter the yard. Rain and warm temperatures make the grass and weeds grow. This year we've had an explosion of cyclamen, and the primroses are starting to pop up as well.

Cyclamens in the North 40. This is the tree we've scheduled to be removed this winter.

It's too wet, of course, to get the mower out to cut the grass. Besides, it's nice to see the cyclamen and primroses. Hyacinth and daffodils are up as well, but their flowers are a while off, yet. The weather people say our morning lows will be close to freezing over the next few days.


  1. Early for blooms do you think?

  2. There’s nothing wrong with that yard. Gorgeous naturalizing flowers. Our warm and sunny week started off that way Monday. Tuesday was socked in with fog all day and night. So far today is very cloudy with a damp chill.

  3. I look forward to your primroses and cyclamen ever year- spring is on it's way now!

  4. The cyclamen are beautiful! Please put off mowing as long as possible.

  5. Such a joy to see in February!


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
