Well must be nice that you had temps in the 50's, lol. We got all that snow you guys usually expect at this time of the year. ;)

PS love the shot of your cat, how cute is that! ;)


WoW! Buds and flowers - is it spring yet? LOL I'm going to have to come read all of your Amaryllis information. Bob adopted last years and took good care of it and it fizzled this year. Got great leaves then they fell over and that's all she wrote. LOL


WOW Kathleen - amazing that you found the buds and flowers. Now I have to go out and check to see if I have any. It's very dry here in Denver too.

I love all the photos - especially the one of Regis!


Kathleen, 50F and no snow~Someone has switched the East Coast with ya'll! I am glad you could get out and enjoy the garden~I look forward to seeing the hellebore! gail You cat is a darling.


Super jealous with your Paph bud getting ready to least mine isn't dead (yet). I need to see if my Hellebores have buds.....crossing my fingers.


Hi Kathleen! Beautiful images, and the cat picture is precious! Our Christmas was wet and green, but happy!

Sounds like we traded weather -- I've never had a white Christmas in 33 years, but my city finally had one this year. Beautiful photos!


Lovely photos, Kathleen! The orchid bud is amazing!


Regis is adorable!!! I love that shot!

Weather is funny isn't it? Your weather is on the warm side and dry, and we got 6+ inches of snow the day after Christmas. I can't remember snow in our area around Christmas since forever, not even when the Outer Banks got a freak blizzard in '89.

The Palph orchid is gorgeous in bud. I can see that image as a 4' high poster. It's that beautiful.


That image of the orchid bud is beautiful - composition, clarity, light are all wonderful.

Wishing you a happy new year Kathleen!


We certainly didn't have any warm, brown Christmas here! It was cold and white, like it's supposed to be. Hellebores in January, that would be wonderful. I'll have to check mine out, now that it has warmed up. The snow is nearly gone, yippee!
