Greetings and salutations, everyone; yes, once again it is I, your popular host, Mani the purebred border collie, here today to tell you that it has finally stopped snowing–for now. You may remember me from such posts as “It Might Be Spring”, among so many, many others.
Here I am in a characteristic pose. You can see there’s been a change here.Finally, huh. After the big snow, it snowed again, and then it snowed, and then it snowed some more, and then again, and then it kept snowing, and snowed, and snowed, and snowed.
It was very boring. I wanted to go out and work in the garden, but there was just snow everywhere.
Looking at snow is pretty tiresome, but on one of our walks a few days ago there were these weird patterns in the snow. I think because it rained a little before it turned to snow.
The creek had water in it, too. That was different.Even though it snowed and snowed (and snowed again, etc.) the guy I live with was able to get his first shot of the vaccine, and that made him feel pretty good. Mentally, I mean; physically he was kind of super tired for a day or two.
These bulbs (corms, really) of ‘Firefly’ have been here for a quarter century, at least.
There was a bee in one of the flowers. I got pretty interested, but the guy I live with said my nose might get stung.
Some corydalis are flowering, too. You can see that some of the flowers got frozen on this one. I guess that’s okay. These corydalis have started seeding around, which the guy I live with says is “totally excellent”.
This one is Corydalis glaucescens, which is self-infertile, so the reason this is seeding around is because there are other plants of this species in the same part of the garden.I guess that’s it for now. I hope you found this post more interesting than the ones with all the snow in them.
Until next time, then.
