The First Bloom of February

I found it.

I finally found it.

The First Outdoor Bloom of 2010

Today while working outside for the first time in weeks I saw a little yellow bloom peeking out from the edge of a raised bed in the vegetable garden. It’s not much but it’s a flower nonetheless. And it may not even be a plant you like but it is a flower that grew on its own, outside through the cold and the snow to bring color where it could.

This single dandelion is a just a promise of more color to come.
All I can say is the sooner the better!

    We always called it a weed but none the less the bloom is pretty. They do feed the pollinators till more food is available.
    I found my first open Azalea bloom today. There were other buds but this was an open flower. WOW.

    Randy,

    We have crocuses planted but non showing yet. Daffodil tips but the dandelion is the first bloomer!

    Ginger,

    They are one of those love/hate things! If I only knew how to brew dandelion wine…
