Forcing season, part II
This has been a long one: I started with tazettas in December and here I am with tulips, cherry blossoms, and still a few hyacinths in mid-March. The tulips just started showing color a few days ago (a few are not quite there yet, as you see above) and the cherry buds are starting to pop. I brought the branches in in February—in fact, I think it’s noted a few posts down.
Sadly, our housesitter will be enjoying most of this show, as we leave for Sicily Monday. I hope to come back with plenty of great wildflower pics, as they should be in full swing there. Look for continued (prewritten) posting on Garden Rant, but I think GWI will be hiatus until we return.
Oh, btw, no action outside! I know snowdrops are there somewhere, but the thaw has just started,
