Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day
...is 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.
