Waiting for Spring: GBBD, March 2013
In both my Pennsylvania and Maine gardens, I am still waiting for spring. The forced forsythia branches that bloomed in a vase on my dining room table from early February through the first week in March are now drooping and spent – but I don’t yet have any outdoor blooms to replace them. Last year, I had crocus blooms in my Gettysburg garden in early March and forsythia in bloom soon after, but these flowers are still another week or two away this year. My Maine garden, which had new growth of bulbs beginning to show at this time last year, still has snow cover this year.
