We are slowly thawing out from our big snow that slammed us Sunday night. That's it..I've met my quota for snow, now I'm ready for it to melt and to see the daffodils spring up! It was a "balmy" 45 degrees out so I ventured outside to see what was going on for Garden Blogger's Bloom day (sponsored by Carol at May Dreams Gardens). I was hard pressed to find a bloom but I did find some signs of life to photograph
Not in bloom now but I did have 2 blooms before this snowfall.
I mail ordered this last year and although it's not very tall (maybe 18") it has put on some buds! I say hoorah for ANYTHING that has winter interest.
Just waiting to make her "big" debut.
These shoots breaking the ground....
Will later turn to this in April- SUMMER SNOWFLAKE
has fuzzy/fatter buds
One last thing to check before heading indoors...
Hm, apparently the birds DO appreciate my first try at making homemade suet. Like my sister said, " what's not to like about fat and peanut butter?!"
