What’s bloomin’ now

It is so blasted cold and blustery today.  It snowed for about 20 minutes this morning and then it got hazy and black looking and now the sun is shining.  The weather is crazy!!  I noticed yesterday that the allium, iris and sedum have peeped through the ground and some daffodils and Easter lilies but it’s calling for more winter sleet/snow by Tuesday again.  I so want spring!!!

Inside my house though, things are blooming so pretty and very out of season.

This is some type of begonia that is over six feet tall with very delicate blooms.

I have two shamrocks, one purple and one green, in our guest room and they're both blooming.  The purple one has pink blooms and the green one has white blooms.
