I feel like this orchid bloom … trapped inside a bubble.
Another snow storm this past week and I’m driven indoors (into my bubble) and back on hibernation mode, i.e. another snack. (If it weren’t for my new plant-based diet lifestyle I’m certain I would be at least 10 lbs. more luscious this Winter. It is miraculous that I’ve maintained.) Anyway, I am afraid to remove the glass cloche from my orchid because a change in environment could cause the blooms to drop which is what I believe happened last year.
Although today is dripping from this rain chain, and the snow is ever so slowly receding, it is going to be another post of tired indoor blooms, I’m afraid.
Last year in March a few brave crocus were blooming and my young Witch Hazel. The Witch Hazel is nothing but a stub this year – favorite snack of my “pet” rabbit – because I failed to get it wrapped up before the snow began.
The violets are beginning to fade. The begonias are starting to sing Spring.
This Peace Lily is sending up a new bloom.
This Spider Plant is also blooming.
This Shamrock wishes you a Happy St. Patrick’s Day! It usually suffers indoors but becomes big and lush on an outdoor Summer vacation.
So, a difficult hunt scares up a few precious blooms and Carol’s quest at May Dreams Gardens – that we can have flowers nearly every month of the year – is proven yet again on this Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.
I am much more excited about what will be growing and will share that with you soon.
