The lengthening days!

I enjoy the month of February. One really begins to take note of the lengthening days, and light.  I feel the exuberance of life awakening within me.  The Vernal Equinox soon approaches.

Crocus etruscus

Draba aff. mollissima

Chrysosplenium macrophyllum
Iris reticulata 'Storm'
Gladiolus virescens

Episcia fimbriata 'Blue Heaven'

    1. At least 8 years to get this tiny Gladiolus species to bloom, but so worth it!

    1. I have you to thank for this unusual Chinese plant. I adore the fleshy succulent nature of the flower bud. The snows have receded where it grows under a cloche to protect the flowers from the bitter cold.
