More Bulbs

These paperwhites are almost ready to bloom. A few days ago spring seemed near. Now I am comforted by my bulbs.

I love this hyacinth vase. It has been blooming for about a week, perfuming the air.
At the base of the stalk is another flower and...
another flower stalk. 2nd flower stalks are generally smaller and strangely shaped but they are still a bonus.

Hardly melt but I am an optimist. This is the result of letting things go.
This 1st picture shows kale, allysum, and calendula that so far have survived the winter. 2 months to go.
Here's another kale.
Here's the catnip cage showing that the catnip survived but catnip is not vulnerable to much except for cats.
And finally one of my favorites, a lovely leek. If this snow really melts I can harvest a few.

It is snowy out. I have changed to a mac instead of PC and everything looks different. I wonder if my old computer was dim. Anyway, this is the green in my life right now.
This goblet has Thalia narcissus. I forced these last year too. I actually forced a lot of them last year. This winter I didn't go as crazy with it.
Here's one of the garden plants, lemongrass, I am wintering indoors. Some are out while others are in the basement in the cold room.
This is a narcissus, unknown variety and a hyacinth. I really like this hyacinth vase. And this bulb has cooperated by rooting nicely. We'll see how well it blooms. I'm always on the look out for hyacinth vases at thrift stores. This one is unusual.

Bad Blogger

I haven't posted in a while.

There really isn't much to see except for lots of snow.

I will try to get back to this when it gets green again.
If I get feedback, it might prod me to post more.
