February Flowers

Well hello there... Sandy Bear here. I know this may come as a shock to some of of my pals but... today's post is about February Flowers. I think Beanie, Hammie and Little Fox can probably relate... February Flowers always seemed like an oxymoron to me too but... here we go!

First up... snow drops!! Of course... there are soooo cute... even though we've had no snow to speak of.

And some calendula... these have been blooming all winter...

All winter!!! Crazy... I know.

Oh... and some Berginia... mmm... let me check the spelling on that... yes, Bergenia - related to the saxifrage family.

They have nice pink flowers and will get much bigger.

Heh-heh... a few more snow drops...

And the primroses or primulas... they've also been blooming all winter. They like cool and moist best. Don't do well in the summer... but in a few months/weeks, they will be amazing!

Of course, some winter heather...

And finally... crocuses!! Do you have any flowers blooming where you are??

  1. What?! WHAT?!?! Flowers in February?!? *Jerry stomps out of the room, obviously not beary happy.* We just got a blizzard, so we will be blanketed in snow for a long time.

  2. February is essentially Spring in Oregon. I have seen Crocuses on my walks, our trees in the backyard have buds on them, the roses need to be chopped back, and believe it or not I saw some sort of early daffodil last week.

    Spring is my favorite time. Jerry, I suggest you take a field trip to the nearest home depot garden center asap. Ben you might need to bring cookies.

    1. This is true. We could still maybe get snow in February but... it is looking beary springy out there. Lots of garden work coming up.

      I think Jerry definitely needs a garden centre trip asap... poor guy... either that or a trip to the west coast!

  4. Nice flowers! The weather here has been very confusing so far this winter. First a blizzard with 2.5 feet of snow, then 60-degree temperatures, then another snowstorm forecasted early next week. How's a dog supposed to dress for this weather?...
