Welcoming With Snow….And Colors
Today is the official first day of spring but it has been snowing since midday. So far we have accumulated around two inches. I don’t mind the big fluffy flakes with no wind; very peaceful. However that spring itch has gotten to me. I started trimming the tropical plants in the basement and fed the ones I have no plans for transplanting to a new pot. It’s a task I do one month before I can take some of them outside for real sunlight and fresh air.
They seem to know that spring is coming. Many of them are pushing out flowers and new leaves. The ones that have been in a semi-dormant stage during winter are showing signs of new buds. Here are some ‘basement buds’ trying to rush spring along a little:
And a welcome mat from the windowsill: Moth Orchids

Great photos! Our snowdrops have died back, but are being quickly replaced by others….
Our snowdrops are somewhere under a foot of snow. It will be a couple of more weeks before we can see them.
You sound very content. Happy Spring! It’s such a wonderful thing to see plants getting ready…
Great images and blooms. I treated myself to two moth orchids thee or four weeks ago and they’ve made such a difference in my outlook.
Lucky for me I had the first day of spring off after many long weeks of work. It’s nice to be home when there’s still daylight and to see some new signs of life out there. Your garden is much further ahead than ours; we still have plenty of snow on the ground.
