Austin's had two freezes in the past few weeks (!), so many salvias and other perennials look rather brown and mushy at the moment. Mine are all fairly established and should bounce back fine in the the Spring. That said, I only have a few things currently blooming and some of them are repeats from last month. I'm still happy to have any blooms right now. Be sure to check out other gardeners' bloom day posts on Carol's May Dreams Gardens. Thanks for hosting, Carol!
miniature rose 'Red Cascade'
paperwhite narcissus blooming early
blackfoot daisies and silver ponyfoot--a little ragged but hanging in there
pansy 'Black Prince'
lettuces and parsley: colorful enough to count as blooms?
Also blooming now are a few marigolds, more pansies, a snapdragon, a bit of Turks Cap, a bit of verbena, and phlox.
