Saturday morning I went back to the same plant and oh what a difference a day made.
The next comparison is between two days. The tulip tree is always hit and miss but hopefully it's not too far along this year. The shot below is from Thursday.
The next shot is this Saturday morning. In some ways the snow protects buds but this go round it already melted off the trees during the day and then got very cold Saturday night.
One of these days I'll do a Today's Flowers post without the continuing saga of the camellias but I couldn't resist the next two shots.
One reason I keep featuring the camellias is that I expect these winter blooms may be about it as the buds are starting to show black spots.
I like the way the seed head has a snow cap on top turning it into a snow flower.
The last shot isn't flowers at all but these red berries covered in snow look like flowers to me.
Please visit the home of Today's flowers for participants from around the world. Happy Valentine's Day!
Your weather has been different this year from the past hasn't it. Much colder it seems.
What a BIG difference the day made.
I love the tulip tree shot against the sky - lovely!
Very pretty photo, Happy Valentines Day!
A big different.
Here we have still alot of snow so we have to wait until spring to see any flowers.
The Helleborus is a fantastic plant that blooms when it´s cold.
Have a great week
Are those flowers going to make it? I can't imagine things blooming here in Iowa right now.
Carver: The snow adds to the beauty as long as the plants are safe.
Nifty series ... I'm amazed at how your plants respond with resilience to the differences in your changing weather ;-)
Hugs and blessings,
Beautiful series of images you captured here. I love the flowers with the snow cap on it. They so lovely.
Wonderful shots. So promising.

I for one hope you will keep sharing your camellia's. I think they're lovely but I always enjoy your photos whatever they are.
A friend of mine mentioned 2012 last night to me and it's the first I heard about it so I jumped on here out of curiosity. I think it's kind of sick and sounds like a bunch of skeptical jargon.
I choose to live every day like it is the last because let's be real, WHO THE HELL KNOWS what is going to happen or when it's your time to go on. The past is history, the future is a mystery and now is a gift, thats why it's called the present. It's not healthy to sit around and trip out about when you will die. Stop wasting your time you have now.
