It’s Officially Spring!

Well, the calendar says it is spring. And the last ten days felt like spring. Today, not so much. And have you seen the forecast?!? I heard a nasty rumor of 4-8 inches of snow by Wednesday.

But don’t tell the geraniums!

They are doing their level best to grow and thrive. See those tiny little white roots poking through? Sometimes it’s like watching a pot of water come to a boil. You watch and look and look and watch and wait for the first sight of pure white hair-like roots making their way to the edge of the pot. Then, all of a sudden, there they are! And we get so excited! Just like getting to open the first gift at Christmas. Or seeing the first foal hit the ground each year. More little miracles. It’s what this growing stuff is all about.

A few of the liners are blooming. Crazytunia Black Mamba is always one of the first to show off.

And even though winter is going to hang on a bit longer, the geese have been noisily making their way north. They are a sure sign that a few more flakes a snow mean nothing. Spring is really here!

What to do?

So we are supposed to come to this show to help us figure out what to order for next year. Yeah, right. Can’t we have them all?
