The Icelandic Poppies are up and happy!
Peak spring bloom at The Holler starts late March and lasts through early May. Despite the fact that we have winter nights than can get as low as 27F, we have something blooming at the holler year-round. This winter we had especially cold nights and many surrounding orchards sustained heavy damage to their avocados trees. The Holler seems to have survived relatively unscathed. Our Night-Blooming Jasmines, which are in a protected area, in the inner courtyard, did get badly hurt, but I believe they will survive.
The pre-spring bloom at The Holler has commenced and here are some highlights:
Some early lilies are blooming.
The nectarines are starting to blossom and the bees are always here to help!
The Holler is blanketed from early spring through late fall by these native, self sowing mystery-lilies. Each year they exponentially multiply. This will be our fifth spring here and I estimate we will be blanketed with 10′s of thousands of these hearty lily-like flower. They are quite beautiful. Here are some early ones blossoming already. Does anyone know what they are? For now they are known as Holler Lilies!
The Aloe Veras bloom in February.
The Camilla’s do to!
