Floral Color for a Gray Day

A little progress anyway - a few more (over one) letters in the alphabet of "Sweet Winter".  I'm going to have to pick up the pace to make sure I get this done before the Winter Equinox!

On a gray day, the flora can program some much-needed color.

I love the leaves of this Trillium - the mottled chocolate on vibrant green!

This is an especially stunning primrose too.  Hybridized especially for pots.

...and the Daffodils...

Iris Reticulata - very pretty too.
Now I'm being rewarded for all my "hard" work in November potting up my Spring bulbs - they certainly are a pleasant sight.
