Green flowers give me hope for spring...eventually.
my new book to sell at various locales, and took a copy in to my friend, florist par excellence Neville MacKay of My Mother's Bloomers. He, in return, had made up a bouquet for me to celebrate this new arrival. Of green flowers, which are one of my favourite delights, indoors and out.
paphiopedilum 'Limerick x Hillsvale x Cherokee' is still blooming beautifully, so I had to include it in this ode to greenness. There's another flower bud forming in the plant's cluster, so I'll have that to look forward to when this one is finished.
Many of us in other parts of North America are moving out of winter and into garden cleanup, winter sowing, indoor seeding, etc, but for the rest of us...how do YOU cope with this seemingly endless barrage of weather?
