Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day! The day of the month when bloggers can share what is blooming in their garden or in their home at the moment. That is, if they have anything blooming . . .
Looking around my house, the pickings are pretty slim. I never got around to chilling some bulbs so they could be forced this winter. The amaryllis bulbs were planted just a week ago and don't show any signs of growth yet. The only "bloom" that even qualifies is this puny little bloom on a coleus overwintering in the spare bedroom. Normally, I pinch these off during the growing season, but hey, I'm happy these cuttings are even alive! I hope they make it till spring.
Outside, the snow from the polar vortex has mostly melted, but flurries every few days and the cold temps remind us that winter is far from over. The hellebores are still green, but dusted with snow, it will be a long while before any blooms appear.
Thanks to Carol for hosting this monthly meeting for seven years now; I wouldn't miss it, even if my contributions are pretty paltry. But I know there are real blooms somewhere, so check out the entries at May Dreams Gardens to see what's blooming all over the world.
