Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day
My garden has been frozen in places where it wasn't supposed to freeze. Should I skip Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day on the 15th?

Dear Frozen in Austin,
While Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day is strictly optional and looking about the garden may be painful and disheartening now after the freezing temperatures, I think you should go ahead and look for blooms on bloom day and write a post about them. Someday, when you are facing yet another hot summer day, you will want to look back and remember. Really, you will.
Will bloom day every end?
Faithful Flower Follower
An end to bloom day? Well, I don't think now is a good time to stop this tradition because January 2010 marks the end of Year 3. Who stops at the end? Oh, wait, check that. Doesn't February 2010 seem like a good place to start another year of bloom day posts? Sure it does. But before we start at a new beginning, we have to wrap up Year 3 with our January posts. Then bloom day will keep on going for another year.
Can anyone post for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day?
Yes, anyone and everyone is welcome to post about their blooms on the 15th of the month for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. There is no excuse not to, even if your blog isn't strictly about gardening. Something blooms for everyone, every month. Sometimes we just have to look a little harder for those blooms. But they are there, and there's no reason not to share them with everyone,
