The Ides of February. A day when a meteorite hit Russia in a fireball. A day when a wonderful friend of 50 years told me that her husband has cancer, weeks after she was declared in remission from her cancer. A day when the birds sang in downtown Binghamton, New York, and the temperature reached 47 degrees F (8.3degrees C). That last, by the way, is not typical for us in upstate New York. In some years, we've had three or more feet of snow on the ground.
So began the 7th year of Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, hosted, as usual, by May Dreams Gardens. Please enjoy what I have in bloom and then, please visit May Dream's website and click the links of fantastic garden bloggers from all over the world.
Like the May Dreams blogger, our winter has been like a roller coaster ride.
What do I have in bloom outside? Nada. Nor are any of my bulbs peeking out to see if it's safe to grow.
What is in bloom inside my house? Well....a bit of a flowerball.
First is my pride and joy, my orchid, which just opened its third flower. I didn't kill it! It rebloomed for me! High five!
My impatien, rooted from a cutting from my summer garden, is also happy. She's on a north facing windowsill.
I may not be able to post on time next month, but I'm curious to see how much things will change in the next 28 days. Just think: it will almost be spring!
What's blooming in your garden/house?
