|Paperwhite narcissus (Narcissus papyraceus) from a lovely friend.|
It has definitely been too cold for outside flowers this winter. Last week it was -8 F (-22 C) in our area, with a windchill of -30 F (-34 C). Last January, we already had snowdrops up. But each year has its own things to enjoy.
We are blessed to have a few white flowers inside this year to hold us over. And a new home to work on before spring plant begins! Here are a few views from around our new house...
|We were happy to hang a few botanical prints of engravings we have from my grandmothers house. They are by H. Fletcher, Kensington 1730, and are a wonderful botanical education.|
|Sweetly scented lime blossoms of 'Bearss Seedless', Persian lime (Citrus × latifolia).|
|Orchid blooms to brighten our dining room...|
|And a little peek out of our library window to our oak-filled neighborhood. The stakes you can see in the foreground are the beginning of our knot garden, which will be sited just outside this window so it can be enjoyed during the winter months.|
