Winter Flowers

One of the nicer parts of living in the South is that flowers bloom all winter long. They make the cold bearable. I guess many would not consider the winter temperatures here cold. When the temps do drop below freezing the blossoms wilt and fall. A long period of sub-freezing temps can cause leaves to turn brown. Some how the tightly packed flower buds are protected and fresh flowers open again when the days warm.
