I was feeling sorry for myself.




I've been complaining that nothing is growing in my garden.



All I had to do is look under the snow. 







And there they were!






Snowdrops and Hellebore.

The sun is shining today, 

Gina

  2. Dear Gina,
    it is so nice to visit your blog because there is always something to learn. I had to look up "scarab", the beetle
    on your necklace.I also like the blue and white vessel in your first photo and your flowers are always pleasing.
    Warmest greetings, Sieglinde

    1. Dear Sieglinde, Maybe this little dung beetle has been so admired because it is so industrious. Pushing camel or elephant dung around is serious business. When visiting Egypt it is one of the charming hand made items one sees everywhere.

  3. They were just waiting for you to find them there. I have had to have our Lenten Roses covered under sheets for three days, but I believe Friday we should be able to uncover them from our frigid temperatures. I must also admire and ask you about the lovely scarabs... My great-grandfather was Dr. Joseph Morton Howell. He was the first US Ambassador to Egypt under President Warren G Harding's administration. One day I shall do a post about my him and some interesting facts that go along with his story. I must say, I purchased another Orchid....going to give it one more try, thanks to you my friend. Hugs from afar~

    1. Dear Mary, How fascinating. I hope that we get to read about your great grandfather Dr. Howell real soon. He must have had a most unusual life being the first US Ambassador to Egypt. Egypt is a most fascinating country and I am so grateful that we were able to visit before it became so difficult.
      I'm proud of you for giving orchids another try. Part of the success of growing orchids is that they have been properly taken care of BEFORE you receive them. I hope yours had good treatment so that you can enjoy it for several months. Good Luck and keep me posted.

    1. Hello Pinky, You don't have to worry about your Hellebore. Mine get covered by snow many times during the season. Even below freezing does not affect them.
      Thank you for your visit. It is so appreciated.
