Valentine's Day... the middle of February... February 14th to be exact.
But no matter what you call it, it's really still winter. I know you don't want to hear that. We don't get spring for a number of weeks. But I think someone has forgotten to tell Mother Nature, at least here in Washington our winter has been surprisingly mild since our few days of snow in January. We've had temperatures in the 50's and a number of sunny days in February.
So many that these lilacs are showing their buds... can you believe it? I have some hydrangeas with buds, roses with growth and of course my primroses are in full bloom... hopefully Jack Frost will not make too strong a showing in the upcoming weeks until it is officially spring.
I hope your Valentine's Day has been a bright and sunny one... and like the candy says....
A Happy Valentine to "me & you"!
