Flora Land

 We bought a bouquet of cut tulips the other day. It's our act of defiance as it was -20C with a windchill making it feel like -30C on Friday.  The sun is springtime bright though so it really does feel like winter is over.
 In celebration of the coming season, I planted four cherry tomatoes and some onions. I'm thinking it might be fun to start one of the dwarf runner beans and see what happens.  A single bean plant wouldn't take up much space .  A few beans in June sounds rather nice.
For anyone suffering from the late winter blues, or  political angst, or who is having to deal with challenging personal circumstances, I highly recommend planting something, anything. To see a little bit of dried brown material transform into a bright green shoot is really miraculous.  It offers hope and joy and optimism for the future.
I'd like to thank Dee at a Rosy View for sharing all her wonderful rose photos.  It's always a treat to see the roses in my blog reading list.  She has been assembling an amazing collection of rose pictures and it's always cheering to see them all.
