Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day a bust. For the visuals, see the previous post.

No flowers here. Even the indoor orchids are still just buds. I think I should go buy another one just to have something blooming.

This may be a record at Tangled Branches - longest period of time with no flowers.

But there are some hopeful signs. The snow is melting, just not very fast. I heard a cardinal singing this morning. While scanning the trees for birds for the Great Backyard Bird Count, I noticed the maple buds seem just a little more plump.

Welp, since there's nothing much to look at here, this might a be good time to have another cup of tea and start scanning the list of Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day posts for flowers elsewhere.

Caroline: And they're probably on sale after Valentine's Day too ;-)

Gail: I could do with a bit of spirit-lifting - it's raining/snowing again. I didn't go out today, but tomorrow there will be a fresh bouquet in the house!

I'm bloomless too, but planning veggie containers and daydreaming helps :)

Hi Entangled...I had to 'dig deep' to come up w/something for GBBD this year;-) (NOT 'deep' in the snow, though!). In fact, when I DO dig down through my snow, I cannot find any daffodil shoots, anywhere. Perhaps they never got started before the snows; I don't know, because I hadn't checked. I hadn't looked for hellebore buds before the snow, am interested to see how they are doing.

My snow is now melting but my gardens are still covered...many areas still over 2 ft. high (that was where the snow was thrown after shoveling). Yesterday, I noticed some azalea branches were snapped in half as they poked out the top of the snow...thanks mostly to my hubby for throwing more on top of them;-( I had some holly tree damage, one snapped totally in half. It is what it is, though, and once this snow is gone, it will all be green and beautiful! Can't wait! It's drizzling today so melting IS happening just not as quickly as I'd like;~} ***Just (now) heard we are getting snow on Wed and Thursday. UGH!
