First, I had time, but no money; then I had money, but no time. Finally, I had time and money, but no health to make use of my wealth.

It’s quick and free to see what I found blooming in 201320142015

Spring Blooming Flowers 4-7-2016

FINALLY!!

A blooming flowers post! Yeah Woowoowoo!!!

Allllright. I think I might be able to compose myself (giggle), ok probably not.. This is the first phenology post of 2016. If you started following me this past winter, you’ve missed some of the best parts of this blog, the flowers!! I am super-excited that I am starting my fourth year of finding blooming things and have three previous seasons to link back to. Sweet! It may not a PhD thesis, however it is fun data to me.

Hop on the T.A.R.D.I.S. to see what was blooming in 2013 – 20142015

(Sometimes I don’t have corresponding post near the date, so no link will be given)

I think these were mid-spring bloomers, so we’ve got a week or two here. I planted these daffodils last fall. It snowed one day and was sunny and 60F the next day. Gotta love lake effect weather.
