So far, this winter has been the coldest and snowiest I've ever seen! (Last year was a close second.) Here's a picture I took of my greenhouse from the roof of one of our buildings where I was clearing off the snow. In a few weeks I'll be starting some seedlings. Since the greenhouse is unheated, I can only take the plants out on bright days and bring them all back before it gets dark. Looks like that is going to be a challenge this year...but I'm getting used to climbing mountains of snow, so it shouldn't be too bad!
I already have a few seedlings on the kitchen windowsill to tide me over until it's time to begin planting in earnest!
And I've been eagerly watching the growth of my Amaryllis. I don't think I've ever had two stems grow before, so this is a treat! The first flower opened yesterday.
It reminds me of a huge butterfly!
This isn't a good picture of the flower, but I like the striking contrast between it and the scene out the window!
I'm really looking forward to seeing what others have found to brighten their Monday morning at Rambling in the Garden. I know some of you are already seeing some spring blooms outside! :)
