Okay, if you're dedicated, please try to follow. It's the fifteenth. And I'm not here.
Now, it's Saturday, April 11, when I AM here. I sit and look out my window at the daffodils which WILL be in bloom on the fifteenth (today), but then (now), I'll be in Washington, D.C. seeing the last of the cherry blossoms, which were in full bloom last week (which is now for me).
These photos are of the two blooms I do have now, which, will be dead by the time you see them here. An in-house bloom and an out-house bloom, so to speak.
The top photo is the hibiscus, currently (now and last week) a houseplant. I've found that if you haven't watered your hibiscus in too long, the blossoms fall off almost the same time they bloom.
The bottom photo is miniature iris I don't remember planting, and I don't remember ever having seen before. It is right by my front steps though, so I can admire it every time I leave or enter the house. Even though it's dead now.
