My thoughtful and hopelessly romantic husband bought me un-Valentine's tulips (my absolute favourite flowers!) the other day. This one is the only one that has opened so far; the others are waiting until they don't have so much competition, methinks.
Other flora-related news in this house - I'm forcing some quince branches, and a few of the leaves have opened, and it looks like some of the flowers are quite ready to burst. I planted some basil and rosemary, and they have both sprouted. An amaryllis is also on the go; just leaves so far, but they're definitely making progress. I can't wait for Spring!
