March 15, Bloom Day

Well, it’s not exactly a bloom day since nothing at all is blooming.  But there are little signs that the earth will warm and the plants will bloom.  Over the winter I enjoyed seeing birds come to the feeders.  For some reason lots of cardinals decided to dine with me on a regular basis.  And, that intense red became my winter blooms.

  1. So beautiful! I’ve really been enjoying your photos of the cardinals this past winter. I feel this spring is a bit more on schedule than last for us, don’t you? Happy belated bloom day!

  2. Those cardinals look like Christmas decorations in the tree! Recently, I have been hearing male cardinals singing their territorial spring mating song during my walks to work; spring really is coming.

    • Jean, I, too, thought they looked like Christmas decorations. The crocuses are now blooming (in other peopleLs gardens) and soon my dafs will be out.

  3. Hi Nancy – wow, they’re really red aren’t they? Also very exotic looking, they seem completely out of place in a snowy, wintery landscape.

  4. Sunil, they are very common here in Michigan, so we don’t think of them as exotic. But they are a welcomed burst of color during our deep winter.
