Spring flowers

Some times you need a little colour or sometimes for me a whole lot of colour. It has snowed lately, and was so cold a few nights ago, I brought pot of bulbs indoors to the chilly basement.
My Christmas amarylis has finally bloomed, I bought a special orange one and the bulb wasn’t overly large. It languished until it had some TLC from my friend who housesat when we were away. It had grown an inch in my absence, It had sat in the house for 2 months with no growth at all. Finally a bloom, rather more coral looking than the photo.

The pot of daffs, hyacinth, crocus, primula are doing well, but the cyclemen is looking a little shrivelled around the edges. It was cold enough here for the grocers and florists to bring in all the conainters of their wares that are normally out on the sidewalks and in the parking lots.
