January Afternoon In Mississippi

After a pretty cold December, January has been somewhere between mild and warm, with temperatures most afternoons in the 60s. In addition to being pretty nice for the people, it’s been good for plants too. I took a few pictures in the front yard this afternoon… click on the picture for a larger pic…

Stock (Matthiola), an old-fashioned flower that’s fallen out of favor for some reason.

Pansies in pots. Why a flower this tough is called a pansy, I’ve never understood.

Violas have been blooming for two months. Snapdragons have made it through temperatures in the mid-20s F without a problem. Blooms should come soon!

The bottle tree is always blooming…
