It’s snowing again outside. Grrrrr. Only a very few bold flowers have dared to show themselves so far, but a few hardy individuals of two new blue(-ish) varieties have joined the Pushkin snowdrops and daffodils. One small group of hyacinths has emerged and a few small periwinkles (Vinca major) have shown themselves below our big linden tree.
Dozens of tulips that have put up leaves and are getting ready to shoot their blossoms up as soon as they feel confident that this cold nonsense is behind us. I don’t think they’re any more eager than I am.
