Well there isn't a lot in bloom during wintertime, even in the South. Still, it's a whole lot nicer than several inches of snow.
I did manage to see more than I expected though. Here's a photo tour of the flowers that were present during my visit to the gardens on January 23rd.
There were plenty of camillas still holding their own. Earlier in the week, the area had freezing tempertaures and even a dusting of snow.
Of course there were many types of holly present.
And even the jonquils and daffodils were begining to make their presence known.
There were some pretty areas of decorative kale, pansies and other planted flowers.
And the star magnolias were beginning to bloom too.
I must say I was surprised to see so much popping this early. In Georgia, late February is when some of these flower types begin to make an appearance.
Hope you enjoyed seeing the first signs of Spring in the South.
