An indoor flower garden
I've been so fortunate with all my indoor flowering plants. Not only are there lovely pinks seen here, but the orchid's 46 fuscia blooms are still going strong. The geraniums which vary from lipstick red to hot pink are also beginning to flower as well. I guess it helps that I've given them all a nudge with fertilizer, but still it's terrific to have something blooming. I know further south there are crocuses in gardens and snow drops are out in the villages and towns here... soon daffodils.
The flowers that bloom in the spring tra-la!
Don't remember the rest of that song - but it seems appropriate for today - which is cooler, the pond is full of muddy water and I can't see the fish, it snowed a bit over night and the wind is really high... but it's not a blizzard. There may be sun later on, the little birds are lining the deck railing vying for seeds as well as mobbing the other feeders. The deer have helped with pruning the apple trees - I'm going to have to take my camera out late one night and see if I can catch them in the act - skunks are digging holes in everyone's lawns, moles have attacked my flower beds with abandon and there are tiny holes everywhere... but it's definitely spring. A truly Canadian is it going to snow again kind of spring.
I'm glad of it.
Today I wish you spring flowers, colour and joy in your day.
