Flowers in December?




Let me explain. We are experiencing frosty temps and snow in Colorado -- which really is quite lovely for the holiday season. But sometimes you need a little pretty pick-me-up.

This post is dedicated to someone I know who is recovering from knee surgery, and she is also a wonderful gardener. So to lift her spirits a little (and give her something new to look at ;) I wanted to spread a little spring flowers among the holiday holly and mistletoe.

Aaaaah.... now back to snow and winter wonderlands...

These pictures came from my dear friend Mary Jane, whose brother grows amazing flowers up in the Northwest. Everyday he sends a pic to his family -- their daily "flower-gram".

lovely colors !!! I still have a few flowers in full bloom here but not for long ... it was quite warm so far but we are definitely in the winter-to-come season for a week now. and it is cold ... too cold for my fragile flowers ... and well .... too cold for me :)
but me, at least, I have the flower place :)

Oh those lovely images do my soul good! I was working at another boutique today and am cold and tired and that was just the dash of pretty warmth I needed.

Beautiful flowers and gorgeous colors! We had snow today here too, but I think you've had it a lot longer out in Colorado than we have.
