Welcoming With Snow….And Colors

It’s a task I do one month before I can take some of them outside for real sunlight and fresh air.
They seem to know that spring is coming. Many of them are pushing out flowers and new leaves. The ones that have been in a semi-dormant stage during winter are showing signs of new buds. Here are some ‘basement buds’ trying to rush spring along a little:
