It's the 15th of the month again - it's time for my virtual gardening fix. Here in upstate New York, it is winter, and any gardening has to be indoor.
Thank you once again, May Dream Gardens, for sponsoring this Garden Bloggers Bloom Day.
Today, it was sunny, and got up to 17 degrees F. (-8 C, for most everyone else in the world). Right now, around sunset, it is 13 F (-10 C). We have about an inch of snow on the ground after an unbelievable extended period without snow. We live on the edge of the "snowbelt", and this may well become a record breaker year without snow.
But, with the snow, this is what my yard looks like.
Here's an overview of my back hard, with the black structure being our compost bin. In the foreground, is a large variegated green and white grass that does well in the part shade conditions.
More pots in our front yard.
But one thing I will not be reporting is on paperwhites. After my experiment last year, I am not trying to grow them this year - apparently I am part of approximately 25% of the population who finds their scent less than appealing.
Which makes me wonder - am I the only Garden Bloggers Bloom Day participant who can't stand the scent of paperwhites? (I have the same problem with the scent of some-not all-lillies).
Happy GBBD to all and see you in February.
