It’s a gloomy weather day in Albuquerque. Thankfully, it’s not storming like it is elsewhere in the country.

Still, we’re not used to the clouds.

I figured I’d shine the spotlight on plants that are making me smile right now. Like Nel, a Chlorophytum comosum, or Spider Plant:

Such cute blooms!

Also, this Schlumbergera plant:

After having two successful flowers about a month ago, the Lemon tree has suddenly exploded with buds:

Which is plantastic news. The whole tree is covered with buds. To say I’m excited would be the understatement of the year.

Finally, my backdoor container garden oasis is bustling with growth, from the onions and garlic, to the spring bulbs popping up everywhere:

The parsley and oregano never died back over the winter, instead staying green the whole time. The Zauschneria disappeared but is already back in force. The Crocus flowers have been blooming for a couple of weeks. The Daffodils should be blooming in days. The Hyacinths are moving along, as are the Tulips.

It may only be mid-February, but it’s already spring in the desert.
