We find it in the indoor garden. Amaryllises gladden our hearts with their frilly blossoms - with the promise of more to come.
Outside, violas are undaunted by cold weather.
As are their cousins, the pansies.
Then, of course, there is the reliable old Carolina jessamine for which the butterflies of January are extremely grateful.
By the goldfish pond, the pink flamingoes do their bit to provide color to the garden.
Last but not least, my bottletree blooms on in spite of everything and the Texas sage behind it retains it gray-green foliage.
Even though the predominant color of the garden this month is brown verging on black, I celebrate the brighter colors wherever they exist.
Happy Bloom Day and thank you for visiting my decimated January garden. Thank you, Carol of May Dreams Gardens, for hosting this monthly meme.
