Another spell of warm weather always reminds me that, here, in the Southern U.S., spring comes early.
February often brings lovely bright days -- we've have a row of them -- with temperatures up in the mid 60°'s F. Balmy, really.
So spring is just around the corner. Even the native plants are starting to show signs of buds swelling.
Our Carolina Jessamine has flower buds close to opening. It's a good sign.
