Cold and snow continue to be the most descriptive words for February. Though temperature swings have been common this winter, and often melt all previous snow, winter returns with a vengeance bring heavy wet snow and biting cold air. But inside, white bloom and red blooms brighten spirits this February 2014 Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day.
Just a month ago amaryllis blooms were only a promise.
But today they are in full glory, first presented as seen in the camera’s flash.
Captured later in more natural light.
Nearby, a new cyclamen compliments the ladies in white by dressing herself in deep red blooms.
Together they brighten even the grayest February day, reminding that next month spring starts.
