It's Garden Blogger's Bloom Day (GBBD) and my garden has a few blooms to show for February. It's been a mild winter so far and we've got about a month to go.
Kalanchoes brighten the sill outside the breakfast room. Next year I'll plant them in all three succulent baskets for winter blooms. These are covered when we get a cold snap.
The same Kalanchoe again in the strawberry pot. Succulents are the best choice for these pots which I enjoy collecting at garage sales. I call these "Big Box" Kalanchoe because they are commonly found there and at the supermarket.
The red shrimp plant has escaped the deer long enough to bloom.
Pink Penta, typically an annual in our climate, continues to bloom by the back door. In the summer there are so many blooms on this plant I can see them from the kitchen. It looks good so I expect it will continue to bloom through the year.
That's a pretty good GBBD for February. Join Carol at May Dreams Gardens to see many blooms shared by bloggers from around the world.
