Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - February 2015

If you just look out the widows into the garden it doesn't appear that much has happened in the garden since I last wrote and well, it hasn't. Yet if you bundle up and stroll through the garden as I did today you would be happy to see that despite the cold weather spring is testing the area.
The ends of the pussy willows are popping. It is so fun to find these sweet soft expressions of spring beginning to open. 

Around back Diane is attempting to unfurl her red lacy blooms. She was fooled as was most of the garden with a few days of sunshine. Last night the temps dropped to 5F with a wind that was blowing a gale. The feels like was in the minus section. 
The poor little Snowdrops decided to just lay down in the duff and await better temperatures. 
Now if you come on inside where the temperatures are nice and toasty you will find the orchids abloom. This orchid has waited 3 years to bloom again. I don't know why it didn't like it's conditions but it finally has given some beautiful blooms. 

What is blooming in your garden/home today? Anything or are you one of the unfortunates buried in snow? "They" say we are to get some of the white stuff tonight. We will see. Fortunately most snows have gone around our area this year.

If you are craving some more spring beauties and some garden talk pop over to Carol's May Dreams Garden where this 15th of the month meme all started. Get your blooming fix and start your monthly bloom journal with her and all that participate.
