Finally, something bloomed. Forsythia, always the first flower of spring (not counting crocus). Oddly, our enormous forsythia hedge in the backyard which we cut down last year doesn’t look like it is planning to bloom this year at all. But I had to cut it down. It was huge and taking up half the yard.
It stopped raining briefly, so I went out and took a few pictures. The Brown-headed Cowbirds are just a little added extra.
Having just recovered from a major blooming of the scarlet Christmas Cactus, the pink one is coming into a heavy bloom of its own. Unlike the red one, it only threw a few flowers in season, but now it’s got a lot of buds, one flower fully in bloom and another about to burst for tomorrow.
I think I might be able to hoist the Big Lens tomorrow, but for today, it’s all about the Christmas Cactus which is blooming its heart out as February is ending. Maybe it will bloom continuously. It certainly seems able to do it.
Really, this little cactus has been blooming pretty much since last Thanksgiving. It bloomed through Christmas and most of January.
