This is what is blooming on my birthday. What is in bloom on yours? These last two days have been warm enough for the honey bees to come out and forage in the hazel and willow catkins and the lawns strewn with crocuses. On Saturday I bought a lovely Viola odorata roseata at the Winter Farmer's market. I'd never seen a pink violet before. It's got three lovely pink blooms and they are on my windowsill looking out at a brilliant sunny day.
