El Nino has, in the past meant a potent mix of warm winter storms, rain and flooding. But this go round, it’s been quite a different story. While the East is still deep in an unusually long and powerful snow season our Northwest weather has been very warm and undeniably dry. To the point where I debated going out to water a few key plants. Here in the land of fungus, even this thought is alien in early spring.
Coming up with a bunch of pictures to show this Bloom Day has been quite atypical for this time of year. I actually had to edit my pictures down! What a thought. On any normal year I would be almost belly down on the ground taking pictures of buds and all of their potential glory in February! Actually, on a few of the days recently I DID take pics in some light, but VERY warm rain.
A portion of the pictures are from my garden and some are from my good friend Mitch’s collector garden in this post. Soon, I will devote a whole post to Mitch’s garden. It really should be in a magazine! Enjoy the pictures for this Bloom Day!
