Doug Welch posted a photo on his blog that he says he took yesterday on a walk. Yesterday? Sometimes I feel like I live on a different planet, and not just the other side of the same continent. This photo features cosmos blooming in abundance. I happen to like cosmos. But in my garden, it won’t bloom until late July, and that’s if I start the seed indoors before the last frost.
We’ve been having sunshine these last few days, which has been nice, but it still dips down to the single digits every night. So even though you can actually see patches of our driveway now, we still have that river of ice.
The birthday garden, which has a southern exposure, is mostly snow free and will probably yield the first snowdrop. I can see the bud in amongst the leaves. Don’t worry, I’ll let you know when it finally blossoms!
