Outside is a completely different matter. It is cold. I didn't expect to find anything blooming. I did find one pansy that appears to have been frozen in place.
I also found that there is a lot of promise in the garden. Hellebores are setting buds.
As are the honeysuckle,
and the snowdrops.
The daffodils have pushed their strappy leaves out of the soil about two inches. It just makes you wish and hope for some of those warmer winter days and early spring flowers.
For those of you that don't have much blooming in your garden and those that want to see blooms from around the world see quite the show at Carol's May Dreams Garden.
