There are actually blooms today or, more accurately, buds. Outside it is gray, cool, and wet but there are signs of life! The above snowdrops are ready and waiting for a bit of warmth to entice them to spread their wings. If they are a bit out of focus it is the result of wanting to stay dry. The crocus are showing color. The leaves are still bearing the signs of being covered up by leaves and are quite yellow. The hellebore has its' lime green flower bud enlarging every day. Spring is coming and while it is not quite 'in the air' there is no stopping the seasonal progression of spring. Inside, the Phalaenopsis orchid is blooming, one of the begonias, Art Hode, and two of the streptocarpus, a pink and a purple. I know you've seen them before but I took these pictures today! Also blooming indoors is the Anthurium. The flowers are nice on this plant but the foliage is a beautiful, glossy green! The Plasticus lillium is also still blooming and it is quite reliable for color all year long! Bouquets also count and since there will be company for dinner tomorrow evening, a small bouquet of tulips will add some seasonal charm to the table! I can't wait to check out the Bloom Day across the country! Thanks for visiting!
