Flowers in January

 
 We forever parched Californians have had a satisfying amount of rain lately. When the sun came out this week I ventured into the back yard to find the flowers that had bloomed in the midst of the downpours.

Ooh, I love those white ones. What are they? I don't know my bulbs :(

This post reminds me of a Mary Engelbreit card I have of a girl picking roses in the snow. The message says "Memory is the power to gather roses in Winter." (Anonymous, apparently.) I have always loved this card and this saying, and it's long been on my list to make a cut-paper version of my own. Thank you for reminding me with your "Flowers in January" post! xo Kari

The white flowers are snowdrops.

Thank you for sharing with me. I had to shovel snow before I left this morning. I'm going to have to use an ice pick to plant my sweet peas!

*Sigh*! It's so nice to see flowers in the depths of winter! I enjoyed reading your posts about all your furry visitors. We occasionally feed cats,raccoons,(and possoms too) with our leftover cat food. Your quotes too were very thought provoking.

Blessings!

We have eight inches of snow outside. The pictures of flowers are welcome and comforting. I'm glad for your rain!
