Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for February 2019.
Here my USDA Hardiness Zone 6a garden in central Indiana, we are still in the midst of winter, though there are signs of a few blooms outside.
I looked through all the other February bloom day posts, all 12 of them going back to 2007 and have found that if we don’t have snow on the ground, I can usually find a few flowers outdoors, even in the middle of winter.
But it’s still a season of mostly indoor blooms.
I am pleased that the Lily of the Valley flowers are starting to bloom indoors. I’m growing these from pre-chilled pips purchased from White Flower Farms. If you lean in and smell them, they smell just like spring!
In the sunroom, an old amaryllis I’ve had for several years is blooming nicely.
