Hurry Up Spring

The calendar says that Spring will be here today. I don't think so... True we're not getting snow like our East Coast friends and the air is definitely warmer lately, but there are almost no visible signs of spring around here. If you could see our yard right now, you'd see lots of brown grass and lots and lots of mud.
To remind myself that it's really Spring, I have a few faithful plants blooming indoors. Here's the white Christmas cactus, still blooming away.
The red one is also sending out some more buds.
The Palm plant in the corner of the dining room is flowering, too.
 OK, so Palm flowers aren't gorgeous. It's all in the eye of the beholder and I appreciate the attempt.
So until we see some of the trees budding out, we'll make do with the Spring color inside.
Happy Spring to all, especially the New Englanders.

It's funny reading blogs from all over. Some expecting another dump of snow...some have Spring bursting out all over, and some just marking time. Hope the dogs are enjoying the mud.

SHE had to go through the Blue Mountains last weekend. Some trees were changing colour...

My Christmas Cactus bloomed exactly once. I even tried trimming it back to encourage blooming. Nope. Oh, well, at least I get to see pictures of yours. And maybe we'll have some flowers by the time Tank and Natasha come to visit at Easter.

We've never seen a palm plant before. How pretty it is! Happy Spring, Miss Sue!

What a difference a day makes! Our first crocus is out, right on Mugsy's head (or so I'm pretending) and it was 60 degrees!
