I’m getting tired of waiting for spring. The maples are ready, with their flower buds reddening, but that’s about it. Nothing on my dogwoods or Crocus. I hear the pollen is blooming down South, so every place has its tradeoffs. (And until you go out in the morning and brush pollen off your car, you just can’t comprehend.) But inside, my plants are being springy. I was sure that this little guy was going to flower when I was on tour, but he waited as did another orchid I’ve got blooming right now. Orchids and I get along pretty well. We both like morning sun, and we do well when ignored for short periods of time.
As I understand it, most of the maple sugaring places have already had their fling, which I think is odd since we’re still in the tapping stage. Warm days, below freezing nights. Poor Trent. I think he lives just south of the narrow band where it’s feasible to tap for sap. Must go google it.
