Last January, there were plenty of blossoms to display.This year, Camellias have not recovered from the freezing nights that turned the open blossoms brown and hindered tight buds opening until they feel warmth again.
The buds of Taiwan Cherry are still tightly closed. Last year they were open by Bloom Day, as were blooms of Lantana montevidensis and deciduous magnolia 'Leonard Messell.'
Every year is different. I do have blossoms in the greenhouse: Begonias, Pentas and the still blooming Christmas Cactus and Amaryllis.
Freezing nights in the 20s F for more than a week are the reason for the lack of blooms. Despite a warm day today, we still had ice. Buffy did what she could to help remove it.
Many thanks to Carol for hosting Bloom Day every month. You can find links to many blooms in gardens across the world at her site, May Dreams Gardens.
Happy Bloom Day. I look forward to February and March.
