Bloom Day March, or where is spring?
I'd really hoped to have more for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, but at least I'm glad there's an amaryllis bridge between inside and outside blooms.
That's the last of them, but I really have had amaryllis blooming most of the winter. The very long winter, even here in Maryland. We're getting more snow tomorrow night.
Outside, spring is on hold, though I do have the crocuses I posted about the other day and bunches of snowdrops:
That's it, though - not even any other crocuses beyond that one patch. At least I can see lots of the bulbs I planted in the fall poking leaves above ground, and some daffodils in very protected spots forming buds.
Most of the color in my garden right now looks like this:
Gotta get out there with a trash bag after the next snow melts. Long winter with lots of wind blowing things in.
Definitely going to be checking in on the bloggers in warmer climes today! But first, we're off to pick up some manure for the veggie garden, hurray.
