Roses are red
Violets are blue
My landscape looks dead
What about you?
As you can see from the photos, much of my landscape is still under ice, albeit quickly receding, but ice nonetheless.
The grape hyacinth leaves have emerged and, of course, hold the promise of spring. The plants in pots that I covered in mulch to winter over also have been unearthed by the melting ice and some of them even look alive.
Indoors, a plain, red amaryllis is about to unfurl, which will be the only blooms in my life for a while.
