Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day
There was a time not long ago, when houseplants died horrible deaths in my home. Lately, though, I seem to have developed a Houseplant Green Thumb. I just stick stuff in pots, water them and they grow and bloom!
Also still blooming are the primroses and African violet featured last month.
Outdoors, the crocuses are making bright splashes of color around the yard.
This is a clump next to the door of my shed. It vies with another yellow clump in the front of my house for the title of “First Crocus” every year.
And last, but certainly not least, these lovely purple striped crocuses in the same bed with this year’s “First Crocus” in the front of my house.
I am very, very disappointed this spring. Last fall, I planted about 100 snowdrops and crocuses in various beds around my yard. I was hoping for a spectacular show this spring. I got nothing. Zero. Zip. Nada. A few crocuses have sent up leaves but that’s all. Either the bulbs were bad or they are waiting until next year or the squirrels got them.
Next month I hope to be able to report whether or not the pink daffodils that I planted in the Entry Garden are indeed pink.
