Weather here's been absolutely gorgeous, if drier than a desert. Oh, that's right, we practically ARE a desert. LOLL.. I forgot, my bad. I have my windows open at home 'cuz it's in the 50s right now and definitely want to take advantage of this beautiful weather. My roses aren't doing anything, which is fine, but I've seen swelling on the cottonwoods. I'm waiting for the greening of the willows before I really start getting antsy. Bad thing is that right now it's 50 degs and we're predicted for snow tonight. Go figure. Some of my catnip's still growing even with the ice & snow we've had & a lot of my agastaches are showing new growth at the ground level. I've found now that my creeping phlox is definitely an evergreen. My silver maple is developing those stupid berry-like things, but I haven't seen any signs (as of last Sunday) of my hyacinths popping up. My muscari is also an evergreen. It kinda died back 100% after it bloomed last year, then really took off again in October. Thought for sure it was going to bloom again. Last fall, I mulched in my shade corner where I have some coral bells as, every time I try to grow them they "heave" themselves out of the ground. I read here (not sure where here, but it was here on ATP) that if you mulch them they shouldn't heave, so I did that, and I don't see any heaving going on, which is good. But, I'm definitely going to have to transplant one of the plants there (my Emerald & Gold euonymus) as it's getting too big for that area. Just can't wait to start digging.. but everything's frozen still.
