Some flowers & soon-to-be flowers

Hello, readers.

I just thought I would post some photos of my plants. There are some with flowers, some with buds, and some that are just appealing no matter what. 😀

Mammillaria perez-delarosae with a flower, Mammillaria magnimamma with a bud, and Mammillaria elongata ‘Copper King’ with a bud:

Enjoy!

More dingy weather

This weather has been ugly. Right now, it is 38° outside, and very overcast. It looks like it wants to snow, but it isn’t snowing. This is our forecast, courtesy of The Weather Channel: FORECAST. Apparently, it’s supposed to be ugly all week. I don’t like that. I would like some sun.

It’s still too cold for any spring growth in my yard. There are a few grape hyacinths poking some leaves up, though. That’s a good sign.

I had a whole tree full of Cedar Waxwings the other day, but the light was bad (it was overcast…go figure), so my photos weren’t very good. I hadn’t ever seen a Cedar Waxwing before, but when I called my mom, she knew just what they were. They have little bandito masks, and bright yellow tips on their tails. Here they are – I hope you can see them:

I am ready for spring.
