Glad that my plants are clueless
Today our weather broke several records. It was -32° C when I got up this morning, with a wind. However, the sun shone brightly and warmed it up to -24° so who can complain? I spent the day helping someone get to the hospital, so didn't accomplish a thing except my dusting and taking these pictures.
The Amaryllis and the Christmas Cactus have NO CLUE what time of year it is or what the weather is doing - they are just doing their thing. The Amaryllis looks even a bit sassy in that top photo. It popped into bloom this morning and both of these plants are happy spots in and otherwise brutally cold day.
