WHITE FLOWERS IN JANUARY

It just so happens that all three photos are of plants in our home, over the years

Galanthus elwessii.
I was sent the bulbs from the UK and this is my one and only success

Hyacinth

A white orchid. This plant produces flowers year after year and is now bathing in the sunlight, through the window, and will be moved, in the evening, to its place near a radiator

The deserted beach at Kalamia, Corinth

Sunday, a cold windy day with snow on top of Gerania, the beach without its umbrellas and pretty mauve flowers at the base of the shower

There were many people out walking in the sun but we didnít see any winter swimmers
