Two days late and a photo short, but my abutilon or parlor maple is the only things blooming in the house at this point. I’m using last month’s photo, but there is no substantial difference. That is one of the benefits of the abutilon; it is always in bloom. I have enjoyed the health and vigor of this plant which is undeterred by nights that routinely dip below 50 degrees. We live on a windy New England hill and I require a cold bedroom for sleeping.
I had hope an old cyclamen which I think is setting a few buds would be in bloom, but alas it was not to be. What will March bring?
Farmers are getting ready for sugaring season. That means there is hope of sunny days with temperatures routinely above freezing arriving soon. I have to say that according to my records we only had a couple of days where temperatures dipped below Zero, so aside from all the ice I shouldn’t be complaining too much.
