Winter garden~January 2015

I'm planting my winter garden and I'm also planting some wildflower mixtures.  American Gardens has a bee mixture, a butterfly mixture, and a songbird mixture, so I planted one of each.  Today I went and bought their California flower mixture, so hopefully, in about 6 weeks, I'll see some results.

In the meantime, I've filled in some spaces with some colorful lavender, phlox, alyssum, and a couple of types of sylvia for the little hummingbirds who come to my feeders throughout the day.  They really are enjoying the shrubs!

I snapped my camera just as this dove came in for a landing!
