Garden of early February

It's gray today (the usual for my day off) with tiny sprinkles of rain. Perfect weather for checking out the garden to see if any early spring blooms have appeared. Here's what I found:

Oregon grape in front next to house just starting it's blooms... the hummingbirds love it.

Snowdrops peaking out from underneath the sage plant... ignore the weeds... it's too early for me to be cleaning up. Our winter birds love to scratch and feed on seed heads.

And of course, the little yellow crocus are showing their heads. Poor little things are being devoured by the slugs, so we've been on slug patrol and put out the wildlife friendly slug bait so they have a chance to bloom. Off to our favorite Garden Spot to get more... :)
