TODAY'S FLOWERS - A few flowers from winter past


Living in a temperate zone, our winters may have some nasty
frosts and every 20 years a snowfall that lays for a while, not
necessarily more than a day but our flowers still give us pleasure
regardless.

Some begonias in my border . . .


Early Cheer jonquills that can be relied upon to flower in mid-winter,


and a rose in my bathroom, that refused to stop flowering all
winter long.

Today's Flowers is a great Sunday meme where you can feature
the flowers that brighten your life, do show us what you enjoy.

  2. Hi Arija, where you live in Oz, has similar weather to where we live in South Africa. Such pretty jonquils. I've tried to grow them from bulb, not succeeded. Blessings Jo

  3. I'm not familiar with the jonquils but I must say they are very pretty!! I trust your week went well. I was thinking about one of your posts about your sister. Hope she is on the way to recovery...
