It is the 15th and Garden Bloggers Bloom Day and their are hints of spring finally out there in my garden. A few snowdrops are up, the heather by my back step is pinking up, and the winter jasmine is finally putting on a decent show. Inside, my 'Red Lion' Amaryllis missed Christmas - though it it putting on a terrific show for Valentine's Day.
My 'February Gold' Daffodils look like they my open any day and my indoor forced species tulip bulbs and forsythia branches are also just days away.
The first day of spring is March 20, just a month or some, but it still sometimes it seems so far away.
