can best be described as sparse but promising. I can't complain tho because it's better than last month when there was absolutely nothing blooming outside. At least now there are plenty of tiny purple crocus dotting the beds:
These just happen to be sprinkled with water droplets because I drug (is that a word??) out the hose and watered down my beds (again). We are on course for the driest winter ever recorded in Colorado. Whenever the temps are up and the wind is calm, I try to provide a little much needed moisture. Here's another snapshot I like a lot:
Not quite open, the petals swirl about the orange anthers creating a rose-like effect. So pretty, isn't it? I have many other bulbs emerging and even some close to blooming (daffodils) but nothing else actually in bloom at the moment. Outside that is. Inside is another story. The dainty yellow orchid continues to put on a beautiful display:

Five stalks in a graceful arrangement are the focal point of our dining table. Wouldn't you guess they'd be pink?!!! and finally, the most yummy of all, delicious frosting flowers leftover from the sweet 16 cake:
I saved the best for last, right??!!! If you would like to join in on the fun, pop over and visit Carol of May Dreams Gardens for other blooms around the world.
