A few warm days and sunshine and there they were, my first crocuses to bloom. We are going back to cold again tomorrow, but the birds singing and crocuses blooming are happy making. I think I post a photo of the first crocus every year, but why not?

My parlor palm is fruiting for the first time. Supposedly I could plant the fruits and have many palms. Once again, my houseplants like the fact that all the trees have been cut down, I do not.

The sun shining on my African violet, while humming My Girl by the Temptations. The hairs help regulate temperatures and ward off unwanted critters.

We had a very mild winter last year, so imagine my surprise discovering that my very long legged dog was afraid of the foot of snow that fell last night.

My Baptisia (false indigo) leaves after the rain. The blue flowers are now long gone, but it is interesting how the leaves turn a bluish gray.

My very old croton plant has bloomed for the second time. There’s something sea creature like about these tiny flowers.
