My Begonia update and losing spring

My first sign of life for my Apricot/Scarlet Begonia- after 1 week!

Do you remember when I said we had unseasonably warm weather on April 10, when it was 80°.  How wonderful that day was!  Well, 1 week after on April 17, it was snowing, sleeting and hailing 1-5″ in 1/2 of Wisconsin!  I drove home on ice on main freeway!  Its “normal” NOT to have any snow after after 15th.  How depressing!  Feeling a little trapped again. 🙁

BUT I am so excited that my begonias are beginning to take off!  I cant wait for the flowers!  Begonia #1 is growing in my cool kitchen and Begonia #2 is growing in my warm office.

My sad squill ( puschkinia) and sedum. My sleeping Chionodoxa- until the sun hits them, along with my wonderful Allium!
