First Sign of Winter

Camellias are starting to open, starting in the shadiest corner of the backyard.

In contrast, an orchid in the master bathroom sent up a flower stalk during our record warm October.

  1. I'm still adjusting to the seasons here. The fact that flowers blooming is a sign of winter is just bizarre to me.

    Nothing blooms outdoors in winter here in Minnesota.
