Winter Flowers Day
Today is Winter Flowers Day. So what kind of flowers do we have blooming right now?
Well, the peacocks are prancing around with flowery looking feathers. Does that count?
No, I guess not. Well, how about something that started as flowers? Like the red berries on evergreen bushes?
Okay, okay, berries aren’t flowers any more. Well, sad to say, even my Lenten Rose is drooping in the cold weather, and no blooms there either!
So that leaves only ONE thing around here that still has a few blooms on it. . . the Camellia bush. Right before Thanksgiving it was in peak bloom:
However, we’ve had hard frosts since then, and only a few blooms are still hanging on.
So that’s it, for Winter Flowers Day we have only a few ragged-looking blooms left on the Camellia bush.
Happy Winter Flowers Day anyway!
