The GWI Bloom Day post
This is a nice idea from May Dreams Gardens. Bloom Day: post about whatever's in bloom on the 15th of each month. When I first saw the title, I was confused—we celebrate Bloomsday here in Buffalo and it has nothing to do with gardens and flowers (though I'm sure flowers appear somewhere in Ulysses).
But then I read it, and I'm in. So this is what I've got, and it ain't much. Some forced hyacinths, some African violets, two cyclamen, and a hippeastrum in bud. I've had most of these for some years, except for the hyacinths, which I force from new bulbs each year.
Note the vintage bulb forcing glasses, ordered via ebay (at some expense) from British sellers.
Needless to say, nothing is happening outside except snow cover. Though I suppose the galanthus could be starting to push up. I hope so. And maybe even some early species tulips.
