I’ve learned my lesson. Winter is just too long to go without flowers. Next year I will invest in something–amaryllis, hyacinths forced in glass, florist’s cyclamen from the store. I don’t know what it will be, but there will be something.
Update: You know, I’ve been wondering what got into me that I didn’t have anything blooming around here. Part of the problem was that last year at this time, we had a thaw and I could see snowdrops emerging. Cabin fever just wasn’t as much of a problem last year.
Inspired by the words of Elizabeth Lawrence, “We can have flowers nearly every month of the year,” Carol of May Dreams Gardens started Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. On the 15th of every month, garden bloggers from all over the world publish what is currently blooming in their gardens, and leave a link in Mr. Linky and the comments of May Dreams Gardens.
