This potted azalea has bloomed in February the past three years. It must have been too cloudy this year, as it has just started blooming. Puddy is enjoying the sunshine too.

Up close and personal with a couple of blossoms.

Four amaryllis bulbs were held and repotted in February so that blossoms time would be spread out.

This is the first to open and the first of four on that stem. The blossom is about six inches across.

Watch this space for future developments!

Outside, the "black" hellebore is still blooming merrily.

(20:03:2018)

All over the lawn, both front and back, and in the edges of the flower beds crocuses open their blossoms on sunny days.

(20:03:2018)

The pink hellebore has many more blossoms.

A clump of dark purple crocuses.

And a large gathering of white ones!

Back indoors, the next amaryllis has started to bloom.

(21:03:2018)

All four blossoms are open on the double one.

(21:03:2018)

Three of four are open on the plant with large single blossoms. And another stem is on the way.

(21:03:2018)

Just one day later - the bud in the photo above is now open. This is a "miniature" amaryllis - the blossom is about half the size of the others.

(22:03:2018)

The three plants made a nice bouquet for several days.

(23:03:2018)

The dark red amaryllis is now in bloom - the camera just doesn't show how dark that red is.

(27:03:2018)

The azalea is outdoing itself this year.

(27:03:2018)

The dark red blossoms are almost as large as the pale pink. This will be the last plant to bloom, although the pink one has a second stem that will have blossoms soon.
