Today, my upstate New York garden gently sleeps as the snow comes down, yet again.
My front flower garden sleeps under a blanket of about 1/2 inch of fresh snow on top of snow already fallen. In our area, we are actually running a little bit behind our "normal" seasonal snowfall, but there is no such thing as normal anymore.

I need to hunt for flowers indoors. What do I see?
So I have "blooming" poinsettias once again, without the traditional "stick them in a box every day from 5pm to 8am". Bet if I did this on purpose, nothing would ever have happened!
The primrose I bought for a sick relative which I decided to keep so she wouldn't have to care for it is still blooming.
Also overwintering is a pot of variegated leaf geraniums but they aren't blooming. They are waiting for spring. We all are waiting for spring. What is in store for us the rest of this month? Let me guess: more snow and cold.
Hopefully not a repeat of this, which my son sent me from his truck parked in front of his home this week. (-24F, -31 C).
Every fifteenth of the month, I participate in Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, a meme brought to us by May Dream Gardens. Visit her site, and then visit gardens from all over the world. That's where I am headed now.
I'm ready for spring. The blogger at May Dreams Gardens is ready for spring. People all over the Northern Hemisphere are ready for spring.
What's blooming in your garden, home, or area?
