It may not be too lucky for us in upstate New York, either. We are starting out at a balmy 42 degrees F (5.5 C). Considering it was in the single digits and blustery a couple of days ago, that isn't bad at all.
Unlike May Dream Gardens, a blogger in Central Indiana who hosts the Garden Bloggers Bloom Day meme, we have no outdoor flowers.
One more time, here in my zone 5b garden, I will have to content myself with my indoor flowers.
Another surprise - my two phalaenopsis orchids both have flower buds. They usually bloom in March, and are actually a bit behind- the surprise is that I have now managed to bring these three year old plants to bloom-again.
We didn't get the snow many other parts of upstate New York did on Wednesday, and my yard is defrosting. My primroses are showing through, still green, and promising bloom.
Maybe next Garden Bloggers Bloom Day I'll have outdoor blooms at last. But, for now, we have snow in the forecast AGAIN. Make it stop!
