I know some areas of the country have had an early spring. Carol's is one of them.
It is February in my upstate New York zone 5b garden, meaning there are no flowers outside. Snow rules. And today is no exception. Actually, underneath the snow, I know I have a lenten rose trying to bloom.
Maybe this weekend I'll see the plant again.
Until then, all I can show you is what is inside my house.
Once again, African Violets save the day. This is the end of one plant's flowering....
....and the beginning of another plant's bloom.
Meanwhile, the Persian Shield plant I brought inside in the fall is just barely hanging on, but it is blooming. I could only get blurry photos out of my iPhone (these blooms are small).
And two of my Thanksgiving cactuses have buds on them.
Finally, here is my snow covered Lenten Rose as it looked earlier this week, when we were between snowstorms.
Just think, only two more months till spring (don't believe the calendar if you live up North).
Visit May Dreams Gardens and see what is blooming all over the world.
