Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, February 2012

The mild winter here in the northeast has given us the most wonderful February Bloom Day ever. From the dusky tones of Erica carnea, which started showing color at Thanksgiving, to the flaming red of Hamamelis x intermedia 'Diane', which has just burst into bloom this week, the garden is really coming to life.

How wonderful to have bloom in Massachusetts at this time of the year. I am waiting to see if my tiny and new 'Diane' survived the winter.

OMG...I'm so jealous of your blooms! Sadly, I don't have room for Witch Hazel (BOO!) and have no luck with the Heathers :-( Guess I'll just have to enjoy them vicariously through you and others on GBBD!

I just stumbled upon your Blog and I am always looking for new blogs that give me another perspective of the USA. I will now be following your Blog. It will give me a different look from here on the shores of Lake Michigan, yet some will be the same with all the water near both of us. See you soon. Jack
