This has been a winter of extremes. For many of you it has been the coldest and snowiest in recent memory but for us it has been very warm until a few days ago and sadly the driest.
My flowers however have thrived. Never really dying back or even stopping their bloom cycle.
Things have remained green and with some help from my chickens and the fertilizer they get from my compost tea, I have enjoyed flowers all winter long.
Sadly, though I do not know if I will have much in bloom this summer. We are in a severe drought and I have heard mandatory water rationing may begin here very soon. I already try to conserve so I am not sure what I will be able to keep alive this summer. I am not planting any new pots of flowers this spring like I normally do. I will place priority on keeping my trees and foundation plants alive using grey water. I pray we have more rain this spring.
