Waiting… to see if this really will be the worst storm in “years” around here.
Waiting… for some blue hyacinths. As reported yesterday, all my hyacinths being forced in vases so far are pink, but it looks like the next four to bloom will all be blue.
Waiting… just a few more weeks before I sow seeds for tomatoes and peppers. I don’t want to sow the seeds too soon and end up with leggy plants before it is time to plant them out in the garden. I also have some seeds for perennials and violas to sow, and there is no need to wait on those!
Waiting… or procrastinating, on ordering annual flower seeds. I’ve got the vegetable seeds, but still need to get going on the flower seeds.
Waiting… for a stretch of above freezing weather when the ground is not too damp, to dig out a forsythia shrub in the front that it is crowding out a larger evergreen tree. Or rather the tree is crowding the shrub out. There is no longer room for the both of them where they are, so I’m digging out the forsythia and will attempt to transplant it to another location. The tree is too large to move, anyway.
Waiting… for a couple of orchids to bloom that have not bloomed since I acquired them. I have some orchids that bloom reliably every year, but a few have never re-bloomed. I remain hopeful, they are still alive.
Waiting… for a couple of books I ordered to arrive in my mailbox. Suddenly, I am very interested in reading more books by Elizabeth Lawrence.
Waiting for winter to be over and for spring to arrive.
Waiting… for a few nice comments… I can’t be the only one waiting!
