The holidays are over (do miss the outdoor lights). The days are starting to get longer (yay!!). Winter, however, is still here. While I’m not a big fan of winter I do enjoy seeing the yaupon berries. This year it seems our shrub has an abundance of them.
We’ve had a bit of rain so far this year (yay again!). Still not enough to make up for the deficit but enough to bring some of my wildflowers into bloom. Looks like as soon as the ground dries up a little it will be time to get started on some spring clean up. The roses may still be blooming but in a few weeks it will be time for their annual pruning. The purple martin house needs to be cleaned in the next couple of weeks. Planned transplanting will need to be done soon.
Even with winter still here, new beginnings will be here shortly.
