None of my other plants are blooming yet, though. There are California golden poppies blooming in other people's yards all over town, but I have a back yard full of non-blooming California golden poppies. I haven't even seen any buds. There are also various trees blooming all over town, but my redbud tree doesn't have a single bud.
Still, I have currant flowers! I can't be a total failure at gardening, because I managed to make at least one plant happy enough that it's producing flowers.
