The calendar says it is the first Monday in February. But what is Monday without the brain teasers, Annie’s true or false quiz for gardeners? The answers are in the back of the book in tomorrow’s blog post, Tuesdays with Annie. The inspirational thought on this first Monday in February is by Alex Tan. “Perhaps our eyes need to be washed by our tears once in a while, so that we can see Life with a clearer view again.” Perhaps we need to experience winter before we see the beauty in our spring.
The February flower is the rose.
The Daffodil appears in February and is a symbol of hope.
Soil texture is defined by the proportions of sand, silt and clay.
February can be a good time to prune your hydrangeas.
Fruit trees should be planted in the spring.
We recently received some photos from our friends, Neil & Nory Waldman. They travel the world working for Doctors without Borders. Look on the bright side – it’s always summer someplace in the world.
