Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - January 2017

Good day and welcome to Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. Come with me outside on this misty cool morning to see what is blooming. 
Unfortunately all I have found outside are the promises of some blooms. The Snowdrops are ready and waiting for a shot of sunshine to make them bloom. 
The Hammilis mollis is wanting to bloom too.I see a hint of yellow at the base of those buds. Excitement builds... 
While I was strolling around in the garden a flock of Canada Geese flew over. Headed out into the fields for their their morning feast. For your listening enjoyment, Wild Goose Song...
The mourning doves are lined up on the power line waiting for me to go inside so they can come to the feeders.
So sorry I did digress, let us just step inside where it is warm and dry.
Let M'lady show us a couple of blooms. 
She sits here in the kitchen with the rest of the orchids. She watches and waits for the rest of the orchids to pop open some of their buds.
Over in the living room in front of the patio doors the Staghorn Fern lords over the plants. The Limey Begonia is full of sweet little blooms. 
It is a job trying to get to the blooms for a decent shot.
The pale pink blooms with little polka dots are worth the trouble. 
The last but not least is the Black Truffles Begonia. It has quite a few of it's small blooms. 
They too have the little polka dots. Such a sweet little blossom.
For more blooms to brighten your day pop over to Carol's May Dreams Garden where she has been encouraging people for the last ten years to post their blooms on the 15th of each month.

Holly in Snow

holly tree stands full
so cold, the mockingbird feast
berries in the snow

I am joining in with Rebecca and others for Haiku this Friday here. Please join everyone by participating or just having a good read this snowy day.
