Garden Bloggers Bloom Day or Remembrance of Things Past

February may be the shortest month as far as calendar days go, but in my gardener’s mind, it is the longest, coldest, and dismal. With that in mind, I stolled around the garden, taking care to review what once was blooming bright. With any luck at all Spring is just around the corner.

I do have one little bit of floral drama, indoors: here she is, a blowsy wench of an amaryllis

Bit of a show-off, don't you think?
