Winter still has a good hold on my Connecticut garden, allowing only brief hints of temperatures and blooms to come. So, instead of showing the one or two crocus buds or the green shoots of the Tete-a-tetes shyly peeking through the soil, I'm focusing on indoor beauties for this Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.
Cold and snow continue to be the most descriptive words for February. Though temperature swings have been common this winter, and often melt all previous snow, winter returns with a vengeance bring heavy wet snow and biting cold air. But inside, white bloom and red blooms brighten spirits this February 2014 Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.
This morning's light revealed an icy fog and frost-kissed plants. No outdoor blooms for the January 2014 Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, but interesting light and contrasts nonetheless.
