Winter has certainly come with snow upon snow and chilly temps that make me want to just curl up with a cup of cocoa and a good book. Thankfully there have been sunny days that almost blind you with the brilliance of the snow and our slider door has again become a greenhouse to brighten things up. Perhaps you would like to see this glimpse of spring too?
Christmas cactus - it didn't take kindly to being
moved (we later read and were told that they like to
stay in one spot) but had some nice flowers and
will hopefully be happier next year when it isn't
re-homed mid bloom.
Amaryllis starting up!
A mini orchid that we found.
The irises that had gotten confused by the weather.
We brought them inside to give them a chance at life
and they ended up blooming after all. Very exciting :)
The amaryllis had a baby over the summer and
we transplanted it to it's own pot when we
brought them out of dormancy.
We later learned that it maybe didn't want to be
separated that early, but so far seems to be doing well.
Finally a bloom!
Some muscari for David... the latest addition to the green house.
I hope that this has brought some sunshine to your day. One day spring will come!
What are you enjoying about winter or anticipating about spring?
