A New Year in the Garden

by Lorraine on January 16, 2009

It seems as though all of my good intentions to write consistently have been to no avail.   I guess that’s because daily life (read job and yes, I’m glad that I have one) have kept me busy as well as the Holidays.

I still have posts from last summer that I want to add but I also want to give the latest news about my garden.   It’s beautiful!   What else can I say?   Even during the winter months it always pulls me into it’s tranquil embrace. 

Typically there is something that is always in bloom and one of those plants is the Wooly Blue Curl.   The one plant that supposedly is very difficult to grow but for some reason, I’ve had pretty good luck with most of the ones that I put into the garden.

I’m noticing that the India Mallow plants seem to be going into another stage of blooming and I also have some bulbs coming up, too.   I’m guessing that all of this is happening because of the unusually warm weather we’ve been having here in S. CA.

Normally, January and Feb. are the rainiest (Is that a word?) time of the year and it’s colder, too.   But not this year.   I’m hoping that we will still get bunches of rain which will of course, make all of those wild flower seeds I scattered in my backyard and down the street, bust out in blossoms.

I read the other day, that the City of Los Angeles is considering water rationing.   Southern Calif. is really in big trouble.   Not enough of a snow pack in the Sierras, which means not enough water for Southern California.

The big lawns have to go and as far as I’m concerned, so do the golf courses.   Boy, I’m in trouble now, aren’t I? 

All those golfers will be out to get me.   LOL!
