Beautiful container and bulbs. So good to see you blogging again. I have been absent this winter. I blame everything on this cold winter wind we have had. Unusual and unsettling. Happy GBBD.

Lisa — Since our first snowfall didnt happen until late December, I thought that it would feel like a short winter. February was awful with more than twice the normal snowfall and it just keeps on being cold and snowy in March. The only thing to be seen in the garden is rabbit tracks and chomped up shrubs!


I have crocus coming up, if I pull them up and put them in a bowl and water them, will they still live?

Oh, gorgeous! I need that bowl.

I remember that we were in Madison last year this time and it was in the high 70s.


What a beautiful bulb vase and what a wonderful idea to take those muscari and repot them. Happy Bloom day.


I love your little bulbs and bowl. I was fairly successful with tulips this year although I didn't calculate the timing very well. Defintely will plant grape hyacinths next year.


Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Muscari in a bowl! Thank you for explaining how you did that. I gave up paperwhites and Amaryllis in water, moving to soil, but I would try muscari as they are hard to grow here for more than a season (hot and humid summers).

Nell — I literally just washed off the dirt and put enough water in the bowl that the roots would be in water. They all bloomed and every bulb sent up two flowers, one after the other. 


I can't believe I would ever say anything like this, but I am glad winter has stuck around for a while. It bothers me when things bloom too early. Of course, I might sing a different tune if I lived where you do.

Linda Brazill

You would be singing a different tune with temps still ten degrees below normal (were in the low to mid 30s), snow forecast for tomorrow and the snow total for the season just over 66 inches. But I will agree that our lack of winter and too early spring in 2011-12 was disturbing.
