January, and my spring bulbs are right on schedule. This is a daff that has been in the ground for three years. The ones I put in the ground this last fall haven’t dared to show themselves yet. I’m kind of worried about my daffs in general. They do pretty well, but they’ve not increased at all, not like my crocus, which are doing fantastic! (I usually miss my crocus because they bloom late Feb, early March, and I have to rely on pictures.) I’m going to try some bulb fertilizer this year and see if that doesn’t help.
Book front: I surprised myself and got through the entire Madison manuscript yesterday, putting in the small changes that my YA editor suggested and regaining a feel for the logic and story flow. Now I can tackle the bigger questions of logic, character development, and whatnot. I scheduled a month for this, but it will be done long before that, which is good because I’m working on the website as well, prepping for the tours. First impressions of the Madison rewrite? Dude, this is better than I remembered. (laugh)
