Look What I Found Today!



After the rough week or two I have had, with two back-to-back conferences at work, my husband working night shifts, our mucky-ucky muddy backyard, the bad news about our taxes, Easter coming up (one of my favorite holidays - but my first without my family intact - so a little morose like all the other holidays in the past year) - I needed a pick me up.

I read on May Dreams blog earlier this week about her Garden Bloggers Bloom Day she has on the 15th of every month and so I went excitedly outside to see of any of the bulbs I planted in the fall were coming up - but no such luck and oh, how it bummed me out.

But today, I checked again and look what I found! Not blooms, but at least signs that there WILL be blooms! I am pretty sure one was a crocus and the one of the others a tulip - I know I planted daffodils and something else - but am not sure how to distinguish them until they bloom.

Welcome to bloom day! Those sure are crocuses, tulips, and daffodils across the top row and if I can remember the bottom row, you have two crocuses and a tulip. Soon they will be blooming!

You have promise of blooms in your garden. It will be fun to watch them develop.

wow, here in the north of sweden we are having too much snow right now to even be dreaming of seeing that in two months or so...

Thank you, everyone, for the encouragement! I cannot wait for my little bulbs to blooms - I will be posting pictures as soon as they do!

Yeah! Other Garden Blogger's Day newbie!

Thanks for visiting my blog. I noticed you have a cat litter post several posts down. I'm going to have to check that out carefully. We have 6 cat boxes. I'm really considering that one that looks like a planter!

We'll be excited to see what you have next month!

I feel your pain. . . I have no blooms either. I almost posted silk flowers until I realized I had a plant blooming indoors!

Hi there and congrats on your first Bloom Day :-D

Ah... you may not have the blooms now but the promise of the buds peeking out of the soil more than makes up for it! We will all be able to see the difference in your garden in a month - that's assuming you plan to join us again next month's GBBD. Please do :-D

Nothing like the first signs of spring! It's always spring here in England but I remember the excitement from living in Maine.
