Last year, countrynaturals started a thread called "February 2017 Avatar: Time to Wake Up!"

That is a great theme. Sanderson and I discussed continuing that same theme for February of this year and possibly future years. So the new thread does not have a year in the title.

Show us what is waking up in your garden. Even though my SFG and 99.9% of the rest of my garden is sleeping under the snow, I did find signs of life in the form of some green ground cover near the foundation of the house on the south side (photo later).

It would be much easier if I posted everything that died!

This was a real challenge. My garden never went to bed. happy banana Here is a flower from the Bee Garden with a bee already on it. I guess they both woke up early this year. I guess it's "fer reals" too. Our 10-day forecast is nothing but 70s for highs and high 40s to mid 50s for lows. I'm already starting to dread summer. Our temps are 20-25 degrees above normal. affraid

Not sure I'll find anything growing this month...maybe toward the end.  So for now I'll use a "signs of life" theme and change it later if anything pops up:  February Avatar: Time to Wake Up! Photo_12

I tried but it didn't turn out, so I braved the elements, climbed the hill, and took a shot of the daffodils out back.

Although my daffies typically begin to show in January, I haven't seen anything sprouting yet.

Today, it's snowing fairly hard, and the forecast predicts ongoing snow nearly every day for the next 10 days.  The total COULD be significant.
