Six on Saturday – A New Year Begins – January 4, 2020

It was misting when I went out this morning to see what I would find in my garden. We’ve had rain again, but with warmer temperatures. Puddles in the beds and the Burt lake is back. But, really, no complaints. It could be icy rain or snow.

  1. Nandina berries. I love the reflections in the water drops.

2. Why is a reblooming iris which didn’t rebloom last fall think now is the time?

3. Allium bulbs are stirring among a blanket of leaves.

4. I’m so glad I didn’t cut back these grasses. They are a spot of light in an otherwise drab winter landscape.

5. Can anyone identify this plant? I’m not sure where it came from but it is growing in my small nursery bed. Someone must have given me a slip. It’s now about 24″ tall and has wicked thorns. My brain is saying perhaps some sort of orange but how it would have survived last winter’s cold I don’t know.

6. Last fall I divided my clivias and only kept one. People who were gifted with plants have told me theirs have bloomed. Mine has been in the garage for two months without being watered so it is time to bring it in and see what happens.

That’s my first Six-on-Saturday of the new year in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States. The meme was started by The Propogator, a UK gardener.  This is the link to the rules if you’d like to join in.
