Bloom Day, April 15, 2011

This is my first Bloom Day of the season!  It is cold here in West Michigan.  And windy.  And while the bloom “pickin’s” are pretty slim, there are pickin’s!  I am amazed at the heather.  It bloomed in December, and it is blooming now.  I suspect that under all the snow we got this winter, there were tiny little purple flowers just doing their thing.  And, the violets that seem to thrive despite all my efforts to rid my lawn and gardens of them, have popped out.
