There are no blooms whatsoever in my yard yet. In fact, today our high temperature was 25F (“feels like 15F”) and we’ve had snow, sleet, and freezing rain. Highs have been in the 30s and 40s lately; looking ahead at the 15-day, there’s no temp above 58F forecast for us here in mid-NH.
Here’s a peek at our wintery April so far.
I’ve been rather desperately looking for signs of spring in places other than my own yard; I found a couple this past week:
Hopefully, the cruel month of April will give way to the generous month of May.
Meanwhile, for lots of instant-gratification colour & flowers, here’s more GBBD, hosted at May Dreams Gardens (central Indiana, 6a):
… Late to the Garden Party (south coastal California, where spring has already peaked)
… Led Up the Garden Path (Devon, England)
… Rusty Duck, with so many gorgeous flowers (also in Devon, England)
… A Guide to Northeast Gardening in Long Island notes that spring has been “long awaited” there but nevertheless has hyacinth, crocus, hellebore, daffodils … and a photogenic bunny rabbit!
… Dirt Therapy in Vancouver, WA has rhododendron, anemone, veronica, clematis, flowering currant, quince, corydalis, and more!
Buds in the snow! Hope it warms up soon
Happy Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day!
A bear? Crikey. That beats the bunnies and squirrels I usually catch on the field cam. The critters must all be so hungry after the long winter you’ve had. Surely you must soon see an end to it. Thank you for the link.
Fingers crossed all your spring flowers are soon in bloom. Everything seems suddenly to have sprung to life here and the long winter has soon been forgotten.
I feel your pain. My Illinois garden is farther along than yours, but it’s snowing once again this morning, ugh:( But I do see some hopeful signs of spring emerging in your garden–hope it arrives soon!
Oh gosh! I loved your post. It made me not feel alone. Every year I get spring fever and it seems winter will never leave. This morning we awoke to snow flurries and sleet. The trees are budding and some flowers are blooming, but I am tired of freezing when I go outside. I want warm weather and sunshine! I am in southern middle Tennessee, 50 miles south of Nashville, it shoud be warm! Is that too much to ask? I suppose it is.
Thanks for letting me vent.
