INDOOR VIOLETS WAITING FOR "SPRING OUTSIDE"
As the temperature stubbornly hovers below freezing here at The Mount (Esopus), my potted violets look outside and say, Wow!! That sun is great, but thank God the Birder doesn't open this window. We'd freeze to death!"... Last year Easter was before April 8th and our three magnolias were in full bloom by the 12th of so of the month. I don't think it will happen this year. But who knows! Two good days of sun and they will burst out with their great, uninhibited beauty. Meanwhile you'll have to be content with my two violets.
