Meanwhile in my indoor garden a lonely Christmas cactus has produced one bloom and the Pointsetta still thrives under the grow light. Soon trays of sprouting seeds will take up most of the space.
I visit the blogs of my Southern friends to see what Spring, which has been in swing there for a month already, has brought them. My daughter sends me pictures of the trees in bloom in North Carolina. Later this week Spring weather will visit Chcago for a day or so with promises of temperatures in the 60's.
For winter-weary Chicagoans Spring is as "slow as molasses in January " but for now we see hopeful signs.
Visit Carol at May Dreams Gardens to see what's blooming in America.
