It's January, Right?!
It has been raining quite a bit lately. Lots of snow in the mountains, with rain in the valley. Last fall in my big pots I planted my Tulips and Hyacinthia for spring viewing. Yesterday after yet more rain, I went to dump off some of the water from my biggest flower bucket because it doesn't have drain. Low and behold I found THIS! A SPRING BUD!I couldn't believe it! It is January, right? I mean it has been a little warmer, in the 40's for weeks now and the birds have been out being psychotic, but still it's January! LOL When I investigated futher I found a second sprout in the big bucket and a third in one of my smaller buckets. It gives me great joy that the flowers I planted months ago have life. It gives me worry because...hellooo people...IT IS JANUARY! I can't stress this enough. LOL So I will have make sure they are protected in case we actually get some cold weather for the rest of the winter. Odds are decent, since it is January. ;) But for this week at least I get to enjoy the thought that I will have "May Flowers", even it's in February.
