The Bulbs Are Still Growing On

My spring bulbs are quite the little troopers. They started poking out their little heads as soon as the month of March hit, and discovered soon enough that the weather was not quite as warm as they expected – or hoped. The month of March has not been the worst I’ve ever known, but it hasn’t been the best either. It’s been rather chilly, and we’ve had a little bit of snow along the way, although not enough to cause major concern in regards to the bulbs struggling to grow.

But despite the weather, the bulbs I planted before the winter are hanging on. There hasn’t been a tremendous amount of growth, but at least they’re still alive.

Earlier in the week, the bulbs had to deal with a little snow. Thankfully, it wasn’t all that much, and it melted by the end of the day.

There hasn’t been any more snow after that small amount, but it’s been quite chilly.

I’m officially FED UP with winter weather, and I'm hoping and praying that the days warm up enough to allow me to get outside and take care of some garden chores. Come on, spring, get your act together. And warm up enough to allow the little bulbs to put on their floral display. We are dying to see some colour out there! It’s been much too long...
