At this time of year in a world of gray woods, I crave the color green.
I even put it on the table.
It was a day on the deck for my tiny crocus garden because we got a break in the weather and it was mild. Sunny blue skies for us! What a treat after the snow and freezing temps! I can see all around outside the daffodil foliage has broken ground…little tufts of green here and there in the garden.
Although the hellebores have looked tattered this winter, I found a few buds clasped together in the cold worth capture a few days ago. I am just now getting the photo up. A few more days like today and there will be action in the garden. I am more than ready.
Back inside, lily seedlings elongated looking for the light have been in limbo. Maybe they will form new leaves for I filled in around them with more soil mixed with blood meal. It is the first time I have tried this but something needed to be done. It is an experiment really. We will see what happens. I am eager to see the results.
I am pleased to report the little orchid purchased last year did a reprise. I find it easy to neglect them when not in bloom, therefore their smiling faces spell success in my book.
A huge sanservieria winters in the corner of the dining room waiting to return to the deck when freezing temperatures are no longer a threat. They are supposed to be good oxygenators for the home in winter.
What’s that? Oh, it’s the garden fairy on duty and ever watchful working her magic with the watering can.
