It won’t be long now until the first bloom of the new gardening season will be on its way. In just a few more days the Winter Jasmine will be coloring our front porch with its bright yellow blooms. I traded for the jasmine at plant swap a couple years ago and have found it to be a very welcome winter bloomer. This is definitely one plant I need to propagate a few more of to plant in the garden. Before the daffodils, crocuses, and even forsythias the winter jasmine brightens up the garden and gives us a preview of spring!
